Oberammergau Passion Play - The Plague and Covid-19
The history of the Oberammergau Passion Play dates back to the 17th century, when the Plague swept through Europe. In 1633 the residents of Oberammergau vowed to present a play depicting the suffering and death of Jesus Christ every ten years if they were spared extinction. Oberammergau has kept its word for more than 400 years. But in 2020 the production had to be called off.
