The Salem Witch trials were a series of hearings and prosecutions of people accused of witchcraft in colonial Massachusetts between February 1692 and May 1693. More than two hundred people were accused and thirty were found guilty, nineteen of whom were executed by hanging (fourteen women and five men). The Salem Witch trials committee will tackle the biggest witch trials in the United States.
This committee will reenact the happenings, taking a similar procedure to the International Court of Justice (ICJ), where there are defenders, witnesses and prosecutors, all presenting facts to try and convince a jury of their claims (which is still to be decided if composed by unbiased teachers and other chairs or by ourselves). The people in this committee will be the actual historical figures involved, the accused women, family members, and the judges.
