On Christmas morning I took a short trip just outside of Munich to witness the memorial service for the Sendling's night of murder.

From WikipediaSendling's night of murder (German: Sendlinger Mordweihnacht) was a massacre in 1705 in Sendling, 2 km south west of Munich. An army of peasants, protesting the Austrian regime during the Bavarian People's Uprising, had marched on Munich, but was betrayed from within and massacred. Some 1,100 peasants were killed.
