Witches are present in different cultures from the dawn of history. They intimidated people, because their attitudes looked like very strangely. However, they are usually characters in legends and novels, so we can think they don’t exist. But I want to tell you story about a real witch, who lived in small village in Poland…

Witches are present in different cultures from the dawn of history. They intimidated people, because their attitudes looked like very strangely. However, they are usually characters in legends and novels, so we can think they don’t exist. But I want to tell you story about a real witch, who lived in small village in Poland…

The history began a short time before World War Two, when a seemingly normal woman and her husband moved to a house in the countryside. They had seven children. Everyone was average in the looks and behavior department. Only one person comported differently – the woman. She terrorized other inhabitants, but she didn’t use violence. It was something more frightening – a kind of magic. The family of my grandmother lived there. They also were victims of the neighbor. One time my grandmother was coming back home with basket of nettle.

When she was walking near the house of the “witch”, she saw that somebody was watching her from there. Suddenly, all her teeth started to hurt. She dropped her basket and ran home. Luckily, her aunt knew what they should do. She brewed herbs and gave them to my grandmother. She had to rinse mouth with it. Later, she would spit it back. In the evening, my aunt went to the neighbor’s house and spilled this substance on stairs to her house. When the “witch” came out, the bad magic was gone.

Some time later my great-aunt also felt moments of awe. It started, when she frightened her son by showing a knife. His mother decided to get revenge. Soon, my great-aunt’s legs started to hurt. It caused that she couldn’t walk. Moreover, her hair became unkempt and nobody could style them. Wherefore, my great-grandfather went to city to visit a person called a “sage”.

He needed two things: a photo of my great-aunt and his… urine. When he looked at them, he knew everything. The “Sage” told her that she frightened the son of the “witch”, so she got a curse. He gave advice on what they have to do. In the night, they prepared practices, that cured victim. Similar situations were repeated. The woman did this probably because she envied things that people had.

In the 70s the “witch” died and people were thinking about what happened with the abilities of the neighbor. They reached the conclusion that her power disappeared, because nobody was present during his death.

Even though it’s unthinkable, it really happened. People think that something doesn’t exist, because they don’t understand it. But the world is surprising and we never know, what we can expect.
