“The Lodz Angelmaker,” Serial Baby-Killer – Poland, 1913


FULL TEXT (translated from German): In Lodz, the police tracked down numerous crimes committed by a midwife. An announcement had been made to the woman that several newborn children who had been handed over to her had recently died in her apartment. During a house search, five decayed child corpses were found. The midwife had already fled from Lodz. Forty child murders, however, can be proven to her credit.
