Fritz Haarmann’s Preserved Head - Known as the “Butcher of Hanover” and the “Vampire of Hanover” was a German serial killer who is believed to have been responsible for the murder of 27 boys and young men between 1918 - 1924. He was convicted, found guilty of 24 murders and executed. Haarmann was beheaded by guillotine on April 15, 1925. His head was preserved in a jar by scientists to examine the structure of the brain. Haarmann’s head is now kept at the Göttingen medical school.
"There is no real me: only an entity, something illusory. And though I can hide my cold gaze, and you can shake my hand and feel flesh gripping yours and maybe you can even sense our lifestyles are probably comparable… I simply am not there.”
American Psycho (2000) dir. Mary Harron
