He stole a load of kids and they were never seen again.

Yes. But you can't judge historical figures by today's morals.

He was a kidnapper, not a paedo. The villagers wouldn’t pay for his rat killing so he kidnapped their kids and held them to ransom.

I thought the pied piper only played his flute to attract animals, either that or I'm thinking of someone else.

I can't remember the story much but thought he left with the kids and the kids weren't seen again?

That was my recollection of the story as well.

Dude solves the towns rat problem, they refuse to pay up, he lures the kids away into a cave and they are never seen again. Happy days!

Yet another Pied Piper apologist who insists we separate the art from the artist. :roll:

I think they were held as collateral and released after the town paid up. That or they were sent to work in Poland

There are several different versions of the story. Some versions say he marched the children into a river where they drowned.
