Thanks for clearing up the mercury thing for me. It all makes sense now!

Theories about the disappearance of Hamelin's children abound: an epidemic; a catastrophe such as a landslide in the mountains; foul play and eventual execution of the children by the Piper; the luring of the children by some silver-tongued orator who convinced them to join the Children's Crusade.

There's even a theory that it might have been a case of simple emigration (assuming that the phrase "children of the town" could've referred to the residents of the town, second-generation and onward [minors and adults]), and that a large number of these residents moved away at around the same time, lured by recruiters as part of the drive by Germany to colonize new lands in eastern Europe that had been won in battle.
