Anna Maria Ludwig(Conrad)
Anna Maria was the wife of George Conrad "The Elder" and Hans Heinrich Conrad. She was the last person charged with witchcraft in the village of Kleinheubach, Germany. Anna Maria survived brutal torture and the death of the rest of her family. Her horrific ordeal at the hands of the Holy Roman Church is the subject of my semi-fictional book "The Last Heretic".

"This book was so well written I felt like I was there witnessing the unthinkable acts towards Anna Maria. I couldn't put it down"- Peggy, McLure, BC
We both read THE LAST HERETIC....what a terrible but captivating story!..We both read it in 2 days as we could not put it down...thanks so much for offering it to us... - Nicole, St Souveur, PQ
I received a copy of The Last Heretic in the mail and both my wife and I read it in 2 days. It was very well written and both difficult and fascinating to read. Difficult to read in part because Anna Marie was a relative of ours, albeit many generations in the past, and also because what happened to her, happened to many innocent victims. Thanks ever so much for this fascinating glance into Conrad family history! - Christopher, St John's, NL.
I sat right down and read it from cover to cover. Just had to finish it before I called it a day. It was very riveting -- yet so sad, too. I never realized things were like that -- hope we never see that dark side again. Would make a good movie.- Shirley, Carver, MA.
While my book The Last Heretic is a semi-fiction, the full and true account of Anna's family is even more horrific. For instance, Anna was pregnant during her torture and her mother Maria and brothers George, Stefan and Hans(and his wife Margarethe) were executed. There were many more Conrad ancestors executed as witches. My book Blood of the Witches is of particular interest to anyone with Conrad ancestry. For a signed copy by the author click here.
