Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

your story is very interesting. I think you meant "Wittlich" (my hometown ;-)) instead of Witchelle.
you are not the only one who has heard the story!

I`m studying Folklore/Cultureanthropology & Sociology in Germany and write a thesis about this story. Where & when did you heard of the story? I would be very thankfull & happy, if you could answer me some questions. 

http://www.buzzle.com/editorials/11-23-2002-30902.asp (qoute)
The Morbach Monster
Was it man or beast? Can the US Air Force be mistaken? The town of Wittlich is said to be the last place in Germany where a werewolf has been killed.
The Legend
The town of Wittlich is said to be the last place in Germany where a werewolf has been killed.
Thomas Johannes Baptist Schwytzer, a deserter from Napoleon’s Army and a veteran of the disaster at Moscow, is fleeing to his homeland in Alsace. With him are a group of Russians, also deserters. While passing by the village of Wittlich, the hungry soldiers spy a farmhouse and decide to take what they want. In the midst of their scavenging they are discovered by the farmer, whom they promptly murder along with his sons.
The farmer's wife, seeing this foul deed lets out a wail and curses Schwitzer.
"From now on at each full moon you will change into a rabid wolf!" she screams in her anguish.
Schwytzer relieves her suffering by crushing her skull.
But the curse works. Gradually a change comes over Schwytzer. He becomes harder, without inhibitions. He robs, rapes, and murders at his pleasure. He soon departs from his fellows who have had enough, and takes up with bandits, and highwaymen. Even these ruffians are appalled at Schwitzer's excesses, so the ex-soldier flees to the sanctuary of the deep forests.
There the tales of a wolf that walks like a man will spread throughout the countryside. At night men and cattle are brutally slaughtered by the beast.
One night Schwytzer spies the beautiful daughter of a local farmer. Her name is Elizabeth Beierle, and in his carnal lust he rapes her.
Days later, while by his campfire in the woods, Schwytzer is discovered by a group of villagers who take him for the werewolf. They give chase and corner the fugitive near the village of Morbach. Promptly dispatching Schwytzer, the villagers bury him at a crossing. There a shrine is erected where a candle will burn continually. As long as the candle is lit, so the legend goes, the werewolf will not return.
Nine months later, a son is born to Elizabeth Beierles, whom she names Martin. To this day the descendants of this bastard child are a respected family in the vicinity of Morbach, and show no sign of the curse of their infamous ancestor, Thomas Johannes Baptist Schwytzer.
That is until 1988.


Morbach US Air Force ammunition depot
One evening a group of air force personnel are returning to their base at Morbach. Passing the old shrine they notice the candle is out. They begin to laugh and joke about this, for all have heard of the legend of the werewolf.

Later, at the base, automatic sirens peal into the night. Someone or something has activated the perimeter fence sensors. While investigating, a security guard spies a large creature, like a wolf, standing on its hind legs. It gazes at the soldier for a moment and then flees, clearing a 3 meter fence with ease.

A police dog is brought to track the beast, but upon arriving at the spot where the werewolf was seen, the canine trembles and howls, refusing to go further.

What was it? Some story made up to frighten new recruits? Or was it really a descendant of Schwitzer transformed into a wolf? You decide!

Regardless of the questions, the candle at the shrine is relit, and the creature has been seen no more.

O.o

Uh, don't shoot it. From what I've heard, it's never done any damage and I don't think even a silver bullet is going to hurt a ghost......

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I have heard this before. It seems interesting.

My question is: Is this in Wittlich or Morbach?

Also, where specifically in the town?

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

The legend is called "Morbach Monster", but in the story it is said that the werewolf was seen in Wittlich.
Morbach is a small town in the area "Kreis Bernkastel-Wittlich" and about 30 km away from the town wittlich. The base was in Morbach (in the near of Wenigerath & Rapperath) and so i believe they saw it in Morbach (there you can also find the 3 meter high security fences).  In the near of the base you could also find a few small shrines (in german "Heiligenhäuschen") with candles. I have made some pictures from the area (shrines&fence), if you are interested i could upload it...

1988 were still the french army in Wittlich based at.


@sentinel: where did you heard this before? (internet, friends, etc. ?)
Next Saturday I will be in Morbach & Wittlich again. So if you have some hints, please tell me. big_smile

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I would be extremely interested. If it is too much you could e-mail me about it. An excellent addition to that would be some specific longitude/latitude coordinates of the locations, or at least street names and directions.

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I've heard about this legend before! I always thought it was neat because of the Air Force sighting. I heard about it a couple of years when I joined this site, but I don't recall if I heard about ot from this site directly or from this one (which this website has a link to in the "Internet Links to Werewolf Legends and Lore" thread): http://www.pitt.edu/~dash/werewolf.html

I'd like to see your pictures too Burgard, if you can upload them big_smile

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I just have looked for street names with google maps. But those villages are so small, that google maps don`t know any street names. I have made a more precise description to the photos. If you want to visit the places, don`t worry, its very easy to find. The villages are very small and you cannot miss the shrines.

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

The munition site is now the Morbach Energy Landscapeproject. In german its called "Energielandschaft" (just follow the signboards). You can see the wind turbines from a distance. Across from this you will get to Wenigerath & easily to Rapperath.

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I`m going to publish my work about the Morbach Monster soon, but only in german ;-) Now I`m searching for pictures that could be on the cover. So if someone has a good idea, i would be very glad. It should be a serious picture, because it will be a scientific book.  Pictures of a werewolf look like a comic figure or a bloody monster would be wrong. It would be great if the picture is without any copyrights or very cheap, because i am a poor student and cannot pay money for a picture from disney or universal ;-)

Re: german weerwolf db and tion you need to see this

I am really happy, because now my book about the monster/werewolf from morbach is official for sale.
