Marianna Breszczak, Caroline Ostrouszko & Juliana Wroclawska, Serial Baby-Killers – Poland, 1898


FULL TEXT (translated from German): Vienna, March 6th. – The "Deutsche Volksblatt" reports: In two villages near Warsaw, as Polish papers have reported, they came to grips with terrible crimes, and some women have practiced “angel-making” on a large scale. One of them, Caroline Ostrouszko, burned the small, helpless children delivered to her care alive in the oven; another, Juliana Wroclawska by name, slowly starved the poor creatures; the third child murderer, Marianna Breszczak, had partly drowned her unhappy carers, partly starved them, and partly buried them alive in the fields and woods! The shrews had committed their horrible crimes for years undetected.

FULL TEXT: Wien, 6. März. – Das “Deutsche Volksblatt" meldet :In zwei Ortschaften in der Nähe von Warschau kam man, wie polnische Blätter berichten, furchtbaren Verbrechen aus die Spur; einige Weiber haben die “Engelmacherei" geradezu im großen Maßstabe betrieben. Die eine derselben, Caroline Ostrouszko, verbrannte die ihr zur Pflege übergebenen kleinen, hilflosen Kinder lebendig im Ofen; eine andere, Juliana Wroclawska mit Namen, ließ die armen Wesen langsam verhungern; die dritte Kindermörderin, Marianna Breszczak, hatte ihre unglücklichen Pfleg linge theils ertränkt, theils verhungern lassen, theils aber im Felde und Walde lebendig begraben! Die Megären hatten ihre grässlichen Verbrechen jahrelang unentdeckt verübt.
