Oberammergau remained untouched until a homesick villager returned one night, unknowingly bringing with him the dreaded plague. Almost one hundred villagers died as a result. Frightened survivors vowed that if God saved them from the plague, once every ten years they would re-enact the agony and crucifixion of Christ. From then on there were no further deaths from the plague. The villagers have fulfilled their pledge ever since.
