"Der Wind, der Wind Das himmlische Kind." "The wind, the wind, the heavenly child", the German word himmlisch is for heavenly, celestial (from the sky) and /or delectable and surely it refers to Zephyr the gentle wind, Greek Mythology was commonly known among educated people. Zephyr was known as the fruiting wind, messenger of spring, the most gentle among his brothers, he is represented with butterfly or fairy wings, a teen without a beard, half-naked and barefoot, partly covered by a mantle held in his hands, from which he carries and spreads a lot of flowers.

There is actually another origin of Hänsel and Gretel in which Hansel and gretel killed the witch because they were jealous of her baking skills. Read it in a book....a german scientist went to look for the real meaning behind the story and found the actual house of the witch were a skeleton was found in the oven. Worth a read:)

My grandmother used to tell me this version, but with a stepmother, swan, and the father didn't know. The stepmother told him they had ran away. She told me the "old versions" of most all fairytales. She would be over a hundred year old if she were still alive. I miss listening to her stories.

You don’t understand Fairy tales. They are mythology for children. You are ignoring the symbolism. You need to study mythology and psychology. There are deeper spiritual meanings. You can’t take these stories literally.

If the witch could make a house made of desert and have food to fatten up the chicken, then why could she not just use her magic to escape the oven ? Or why didn't she just use her magic to create some children to eat ? And why didn't the father, conspire with the children, to kill and eat the step mother? The story is entirely unbelievable.

Lazy mother and father should have gone into the forest and gathered food. The wood cutter had work. And the bears and wolves had to be eating something.

This falling down the hill in a barrel and not dying makes me think of the movie "The Lovely Bones" at the end where the killer falls down the hill from slipping on the ice, to break his back and hopefully die there. Wonder if the writer of that scene knew this tale? hmm...

I thought in the original when Hansel and Gretel were kicked out of the woods and they noticed a house I thought they were greeted by the Devil’s sister and that the devil wanted to kill them. Perhaps that is just one version and maybe it’s not exactly the original.

I like Nino and Ella version the best! It had a real moral (unlike the other two versions) and featured a nice balance of good characters (prince, nino, and ella) with bad characters (stepmother). In Hansel and Gretel, I'm confused at who's supposed to be the big bad: stepmother or the witch?

New Sub, glad I found this channel! You have done your research well. I have been interested in these historical stories for many years and this is one I always found super creepy and just awful. But back years ago they served their purpose as warnings to children, and horror stories. Horrible ones...
