n this date in 1961, Czechoslovakian maternity ward nurse Marie Fikackova was hanged at Prague’s Pankrac Prison for murdering newborns in her care.

Fickakova, nee Schmidlova, was a well-liked 24-year-old with a failed marriage already at her back when she was arrested in February 1960 after two infants died of brain injuries the same night during her shift at the Sušice hospital.

Under lengthy interrogation, Fikackova finally confessed to having developed the habit of relieving the agitation of her menses (her story, not mine!) by permanently silencing newborns who bawled too much. We all have our personality quirks, but if hers was “homicidally enraged by crying babies” then it’s safe to say she was in the wrong line of work.

Just a few post-partum abortions slightly ahead of time.

She’d be the Director of Health Services in today’s NY or VA

Arrested in February 1960. Executed in April 1961. A good turnaround.

Czechoslovak serial killer Marie Fikackova was a neonatal nurse who was convicted of killing two newborn babies in 1960 in Susice, Czechoslovakia.

Marie Fikackova was born on September 9, 1936, in Susice, Czechoslovakia to parents of German descent who named her Marie Schmidl. Marie grew up in a dysfunctional family. She later married but the marriage did not last. Marie attended medical school and graduated in 1955 resulting in her began working as a nurse in the obstetrics department of the hospital in 1957.

Marie was on duty at the hospital on February 23, 1960, when two female newborn babies who were 20 hours and five weeks old died in the obstetric department.

Marie was convicted of murdering two babies during her trial February 23, 1960, because the other killings could not be proven.
