Soon the village realizes that there is a connection between the missing Szulski and Hradschek. Thus Hradschek is imprisoned. After a while an old woman from the neigbourhood comes forth with what she has seen in the night. Hradschek is brought to his garden and the police digs up the ground under the pear tree, where soon they find the French soldiers skeleton. It is obvious that this skelton is far too old to be Szulskis. Thus Hradschek, who has a good story to explain his mysterious nightly digging, is freed. Yet his wife cannot overcome her bad conscience and soon dies. The old story starts haunting Hradschek and in order to get rid of it, he decised to remove the dead body of Szulski, who had been burried in the wine cellar. Thus he climbs down at night, but, due to some misfortune, an oil barrel rolls over the trapdoor to the cellar and Hradschek has to spend the night with the dead body. The next day he is found - dead.
The village keeps the affair mostly under wraps.Read more ›
