Bavaria, Germany was the hometown of a young Catholic girl named Anneliese Michel and also the place where everyone would be witnesses of her agony and pain.
At the age of 17, she was diagnosed with epilepsy and began having unusual attacks but after many treatments, Annelise showed no improvement. After a while, she not only got physically worse, but spiritually as well. She started to show an intolerant behaviour towards objects, pictures and religious places such as crucifixes, images of the virgin, to churches and more.
Anneliese’s prayers, instead of helping her, seemed to do her damage as she started to see devilish apparitions every time she did.
In 1975, an exorcism was authorized that determined Annelise was possessed by 6 demons: Lucifer, Cain, Judas Iscariot, Adolf Hitler, Nero, and Fleischmann (a disgraced priest). From September 1975 to July 1976, exorcisms were practiced constantly on her. However, she lost the battle on July 1st, 1976 and passed away by the age of 23 due to malnutrition and dehydration.
Two years after her departure, her family asked for an exhumation since a nun told them that Anneliese’s body hadn’t been deteriorating yet.
When the exhumation was done, only the authorities and Anneliese’s parents could see the body.
An official report described the body showed signs of deterioration but her parents said it was actually intact.
Annalise’s dad took a photograph in which a hellish-look of a hand can be seen on top of her coffin.
