The Path of a German Folktale

 The German folk-tale, Hänsel and Gretel  was first created by Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm. Over the years, their work been passed down and translated in many languages. They are now known simply as "The Brothers Grimm." The selection below is just a small sample of the adaptations of Hänsel and Gretel which have been created over the years.  I hope you enjoy discovering or revisiting this classic tale.
