Background The Pied Piper is a character from the German folklore legend of the "Rat-Catcher of Hamelin" and refers to LP) man who alledgedly cleared the city of Hamelin from its rat infestation by luring them away with an enchanted flute, but then wasn't paid for his services and lured away the city's children in revenge.
Some of the scenarios that have been suggested as fitting this theory include that the children drowned in the river Weser, were killed in a landslide or contracted some disease during an epidemic. Added speculation on the migration is based on the idea that by the 13th century the area had too many people resulting in the oldest son owning all the land and power majoratleaving the rest as serfs.
In her essay "Pied Piper Revisited", Sheila Harty states that surnames from the region settled are similar to those from Hamelin and that selling off illegitimate children, orphans or other children the town could not support is the more likely explanation. She states further that this may account for the lack of records of the event in the town chronicles. In the version of the legend posted on the official website for the town of Hamelin, another aspect of the emigration theory is presented:.
Among the various interpretations, reference to the colonization of East Europe starting from Low Germany is the most plausible one: The "Children of Hameln" would have been in those days citizens willing to emigrate being recruited by landowners to settle in Moravia, East Prussia, Pomerania or in the Teutonic Land.
It is assumed that in past times all people of a town were referred to as "children of the town" or "town children" as is frequently done today. The "Legend of the children's Exodus" was later connected to the "Legend of expelling the rats". This most certainly refers to the rat plagues being a great threat in the medieval milling town and the more or less successful professional rat catchers.
Thousands of young adults from Lower Saxony and Westphalia headed east. And as evidence, about a dozen Westphalian place names show up in this area. Indeed there are five villages called Hindenburg running in a straight line from Westphalia to Pomerania, as well as three eastern Spiegelbergs and a trail of etymology from Beverungen south of Hamelin to Beveringen northwest of Berlin to Beweringen in modern Poland.
Udolph favors the hypothesis that the Hamelin youths wound up in what is now Poland. Udolph entered all the known family names in the village at that time and then started searching for matches elsewhere. He found that the same surnames occur with amazing frequency in the regions of Prignitz and Uckermark, both north of Berlin. He also found the same surnames in the former Pomeranian region, which is now a part of Poland. Udolph surmises that the children were actually unemployed youths who had been sucked into the German drive to colonize its new settlements in Eastern Europe.
The Pied Piper may never have existed as such, but, says the professor, "There were characters known as lokators who roamed northern Germany trying to recruit settlers for the East.
That opened the way for German colonization, and by the latter part of the thirteenth century there were systematic attempts to bring able-bodied youths to Brandenburg and Pomerania, LP).
The settlement, according to the professor's name search, ended up near Starogard in what is now northwestern Poland. A village near Hamelin, LP) example, is called Beverungen and has an almost exact counterpart called Beveringen, near Pritzwalk, north of Berlin and another called Beweringen, near Starogard. Local Polish telephone books list names that are not the typical Slavic names one would expect in that region. Instead, many of the names seem to be derived from German names that were common in the village of Hamelin in the thirteenth century.
In fact, the names in today's Polish telephone directories include Hamel, Hamler and Hamelnikow, all apparently derived from the name of the original village. Decan Lude of Hamelin was reported c. In the year on the day of [Saints] John and Paul on 26 June children born in Hamelin were misled by a piper clothed in many colours to Calvary near the Koppen, [and] lost.
Koppen High German Kuppemeaning a knoll or domed hill seems to be a reference to one of several hills surrounding Hamelin. Which of them was intended by the manuscript's author remains uncertain. Von Zimmern dates the event only as "several hundred years ago" vor etlichen hundert jarn [ sic ]so that his version throws no light on the conflict of dates see next paragraph. Another contemporary account is that of Johann Weyer in his De praestigiis daemonum Some theories have linked the disappearance of the children to mass psychogenic illness in the form of dancing mania.
Others have suggested that the children left Hamelin to be part of a pilgrimagea military campaignor even a new Children's crusade which is said to have occurred in but never returned to their parents. These theories see the unnamed Piper as their leader or a recruiting agent. The townspeople made up this story instead of recording the facts to avoid the wrath of the church or the king.
William Manchester 's A World Lit Only by Fire places the events inyears after the written mention in the town chronicles that "It is years since our children left", and further proposes that the Pied Piper was a psychopathic paedophilealthough for the time period it is highly improbable that one man could abduct so many children undetected.
Furthermore, nowhere in the book does Manchester offer proof of his description Amayo - The Pied Pipers* - People Of The World Unite (Vinyl the facts as he presents them. He makes similar assertions regarding other legends, also without supporting evidence. In linguisticspied-piping is the common name for the ability of question words and relative pronouns to drag other words along with them when brought to the front, as part of the phenomenon called Wh-movement.
For example, in "For whom are the pictures? Some researchers believe that the tale has inspired the common English phrase "pay the piper",  although the phrase is actually a contraction of the English proverb "he who pays the piper calls the tune" which simply means that the person paying for something is the one who gets to say how it should be done. The present-day City of Hamelin continues to maintain information about the Pied Piper legend and possible origins of the story on its website.
Interest in the city's connection to the story remains so strong that, inHamelin held a tourist festival to mark the th anniversary of the disappearance of the town's earlier children. The house was built much later, in and It is now a Hamelin City-owned restaurant with a Pied Piper theme throughout.
In addition to the recent milestone festival, each year the city marks 26 June as "Rat Catcher's Day". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Redirected from The Pied Piper of Hamelin. German legend.
