Salem in the state of Massachusetts is called the "Witch City", but don't be afraid. There aren't women wearing pointy black hats riding around on brooms. The New England city is called the Witch City because of an infamous set of trials that happened there in 1692 to 1693. At the time, the city was just a town in the British colony of Massachusetts. The Salem Witch Trials accused more than 200 people of being witches. People believed witchcraft was real and was criminal. Among the accused were women, men, and even children. Nineteen people were sentenced to death. They were all hanged. One of the accused was tortured with heavy rocks being placed on him until he was crushed underneath the weight. Seven others died in jail.

马萨诸塞州的塞勒姆被称为“女巫之城”,但请不要害怕。 没有妇女戴着尖尖的黑帽子骑着扫帚。 由于在1692年至1693年间发生了一系列臭名昭著的审判,新英格兰城市被称为女巫城市。当时,该城市只是马萨诸塞州英国殖民地的一个小镇。 塞勒姆女巫审判指控200多人是女巫。 人们认为巫术是真实的,是犯罪的。 被告中有妇女,男子甚至儿童。 19人被判处死刑。 他们都被绞死了。 一名被告遭受重重折磨,直到他被重物压死为止。 另外七人在监狱中死亡。

There was never any proof that those accused, and convicted were really witches. Historians think that people would accuse people because of family feuds. Other historians think that a domino effect occurred, with people becoming hysterical after one accusation. Fear of witches spread like a disease.

从来没有任何证据表明那些被指控和定罪的人确实是巫婆。 历史学家认为,人们会因为家庭争执而指责人们。 其他历史学家认为,发生了多米诺骨牌效应,人们在被指控后变得歇斯底里。 对女巫的恐惧像疾病一样蔓延开来。

The Salem Witch Trials have become a part of the city's history. "The Crucible", a play about the trials by Arthur Miller, has been turned into a movie. The city is not ashamed of its past, but rather uses it to teach tolerance and earn some tourist dollars. There is a memorial dedicated to the innocent people who died because of the witch-hunts. There is a "Witch Museum" that tells the story of what happened. Many people visit Salem around Halloween. Salem police cars have witch logos. A local public school is known as the Witchcraft Heights Elementary School, and the Salem High School sports teams are named the Witches. Films and television shows featuring fictional witches have been filmed in Salem, including "Hocus Pocus" and "Bewitched".

塞勒姆女巫审判已成为该城市历史的一部分。 关于亚瑟·米勒(Arthur Miller)的审判的剧本《坩埚》(The Crucible)已变成电影。 这个城市不为自己的过去感到羞耻,而是用它来教导宽容和赚取一些旅游收入。 有一个纪念馆,专门纪念那些因狩猎而死的无辜人民。 有一个“女巫博物馆”,讲述了发生的事。 万圣节前后,许多人参观塞勒姆。 塞勒姆警车上有女巫徽标。 当地的一所公立学校被称为巫术高地小学,塞勒姆高中的运动队被称为巫婆。 在塞勒姆拍摄的电影和电视节目以虚构的女巫为特色,其中包括“ Hocus Pocus”和“ Bewitched”。
