The world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play is performed by the locals of Oberammergau in Germany just once a decade. In 1634, the Black Plague devastated Europe’s population. Oberammergau remained untouched until a homesick villager returned one night, unknowingly bringing with him the dreaded plague. Almost 100 villagers died as a result. Frightened survivors vowed that if God saved them from the plague, once every 10 years, they would reenact the agony and crucifixion of Christ. From then on, there were no further deaths from the plague, and the villagers have fulfilled their pledge ever since.
