This week we are discussing the Papin Sisters, two maids, who horrifically murdered the wife and daughter of their employer in 1933 in Le Mans, France. The murders caused an uproar among French people during a time when class structure was inflexible.  Were the Papin Sisters’ experiencing a Folie a Deux? Were they lovers, who were terrified of being separated? The case of the murdering sister maids has inspired books, plays, and movies. This crime is still considered to be one of the most notorious murders in France’s modern history.
