Gesche Gottfried was the last person to be publicly beheaded in Bremen. After murdering 15 people with arsenic she was arrested and sentenced to death on her 43rd birthday in 1831. A crowd of 35,000 watched her head roll to the spot that’s now marked with basalt stone.
The people of Bremen, Germany, honored the prolific serial killer with a spuckstein (spit stone) in the Domshof town square.
