Artist's description:

Ronneby bloodbath

In 1564 the Swedes, under king Erik XIV, seized Ronneby. The whole city, apart from the church, was burnt down and at least two thousand people were slaughtered in what historians now call "Ronneby bloodbath". This event is considered to be the most vicious episode of human slaughter in the Nordic region.

Inside the Church of the Holy Cross there is an old church door preserved from the time before Ronneby "bloodbath". The church door bears the scars of axes used by the Swedish king's men as they attempted to break into the church, where many of the city's residence had sought refuge.
