It’s a story about a girl who lost her mother and gets and evil step mother what makes it similar to Cinderella or Hansel and Gretel. But in this case the confrontation between the protagonist (Snow White) and antagonist (evil queen) is the most direct of all.

Let’s summarize the story with a help of vintage illustrations from a picture book illustrated by Theodor Hosemann (1807-1875).
