Chaja Wogen, Serial Baby-Killer - Poland, 1903


FULL TEXT (translated from German): We are being reported from Warsaw: A few days ago a woman named Chaja Wogen was standing in front of the Lodz Criminal Court, who was busy taking care of newborn children and starving them out of the world. All the rooms of her apartment were filled with the skeletons of starved children. The criminal was sentenced to ten years of forced labor.
