The Witch Hunt - and why it is still misunderstood and important at the same time

deutsche Version hier und hier

'For 50 years I have never read a book that suchlike hits the nerve of our occidental culture'.
It is unfortunate that this outstanding work is only available antiquarian.
Or should I say it is indicative of the spirit of the present?'

translated from German and dedicated to my wife, children, grandchildren, all my friends (especially Peter SiNeh~) and all gentle people who are anxious to improve their lives - parsifalrain, March 18

(for easy sharing with your dear family and friends, you may download this article from my yandex disc - ca. 2,5MB as .pdf here and in german)

Who persecuted the Witch-Midwives?
And why?

Tel. 030/43 67 30 89.
The issue had the ISDN number 0720-0579.

Here is the revised and supplemented text.
I would like to thank Prof. Bernd Senf from the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin, who had invited me for 10 years to the topic of Witch Hunt to the University of Economics and Law Berlin during his lectures on the works of Wilhelm Reich.
