One of the tests for a witch trial was the drowning test. They would tie you feet to bricks and throw you in a lake. If you came up, you were a "witch", if you didn't .... you died... So if your called a witch, you died.
No. OUt of the hundreds accused, only 20 were executed and only four died while in jail.
In Salem, Massachusetts in America. 21 died.
No one really knows how many actual witches have died because of what they were. However, the official death toll of the British, Scottish, and American witch trials numbers 9 million accused and convicted.
No. Accused witches during the Salem witch trials were not burned, they were only hanged. The only non-hanging death was Giles Corey who died by being being crushed by large rocks. The Witch trials were held in other places such as Europe where some accused witches may have been burned. But burning at the stake was not common during all the witch trials held.
Ann Foster, who died in prison in March, 1693.
The only comparison is that people were killed. The Salem trials were legal trials caused by a religious panic and was contained to a single county. Only twenty people died and those deaths were technically legalized. Jonestown was sheer massacre because of cultish mentality.

There were over 160 people accused of being involved in witchcraft - 19 were hanged and 1 was pressed to death. Also, there were five accused that died in the Salem Village jail (there may be as many as 13 more people who died in the Salem but the sources don't match, so no one knows), and there was one man who was crushed to death by having large stones pressed on him.
