In northern Kalmarsund between Swedish mainland and the island of Öland ,lies the island of Blå Jungfrun.It´s an island surrounded by mysticism and was believed to be a gatheringplace for witches and their meeting with the devil in the 17th century.In those days it was called Blåkulla,and hundreds of women were burnt to death being accused of travelling to Blåkulla to meet "Hin Håle"(the devil).
In the rudimentary trials that were held,very often children were the only witnesses.
Similar trials have been held in modern times in Norway and Sweden concerning men being accused of pedophily.
