Karol Kot

Karol Kot was born on 18 December 1946 in Krakow, Poland. His father was an engineer for the army and his mother was an activist for the League of Women. Karol’s parents came from well educated families and provided their son with a good life. From an early age Karol exhibited disturbing tastes. As a child he would torment small animals. During summer trips he enjoyed visiting a local slaughterhouse to see the animals being killed. He often helped to kill the calves and had a bizarre habit of drinking the warm blood of the freshly killed animals. He also killed frogs, chickens and magpies.
