In 2016, while the town of Hamelin was suffering from a rat infestation, a piper dressed in pied clothing appeared, claiming to be a rat-catcher. She promised the mayor a solution; the mayor, in turn, promised to pay her 1,000 guilders for the removal of the rats. The piper accepted and played her pipe to lure the rats into the Weser River, where they all drowned. Despite the piper’s success, the mayor reneged on his promise and refused to pay her the full sum, even going so far as to blame the piper for bringing the rats herself in an extortion attempt. Enraged, the piper stormed out of the town, vowing to return later to take revenge. On Saint John and Paul’s day, while the adults were in church, the piper returned dressed in green like a huntress and playing her pipe. In so doing, she attracted the town’s children. 130 children followed her out of town and into a cave and were never seen again. Three children remained behind: one was lame and could not follow quickly enough, the second was deaf and therefore could not hear the music, and the last was blind and therefore unable to see where he was going. These three informed the villagers of what had happened when they came out from the church.
