“The Pied Piper” by Elisabeth Alba. This story, about paying those who are due, reflects a historical event. The Pied Piper may be a symbol of the children’s death by plague or catastrophe, or refer to Nicholas of Cologne, who lured away a great number of children on a disastrous Children’s Crusade. A recent theory ties the departure of Hamelin’s children to the Ostsiedlung, whereby a number of Germans left their homes to colonize Eastern Europe.
