Oberammergau – The Promise

It is the year 1632. The beautiful, remote town of Oberammergau nestles in the Bavarian Alps of Southern Germany – quietly and securely isolated from the turmoil and torment of the Bubonic plague that ravages the rest of Europe. A humble wood carver, Kasper Schisler returns to his home in Oberammergau from his labours in a nearby village. But unbeknown to him and the other inhabitants of the town, he silently carries with him the seeds of a calamity that will wreak havoc, terror and destruction on Oberammergau and its people. Within a year of this day, over one quarter of the residents of the town will be dead – claimed by the dreaded plague, the Black Death. This will give rise to an extraordinary covenant with God that still resonates to this day.
