Who knows what he had told her... Remember the very first time he raped her she was 11. Maybe that's all she has ever known... We don't know what's on her mind. Maybe she doesn't think bad about him. We'll never know.

Me too, Tora.

There are still so many things I don't understand.

For instance, can't a 42-year-old woman beat a 73-year-old man? He was an elder anyway.

The room was soundproof, but I still can't understand why the mother never suspected anything. Maybe she was involved in this as well?

The man raped his daughter for the first time when she was 11. Didn't the mother know that? Was she raped too and thought this was normal?

This whole issue is so dark.


Good point!! But remember that when the whole thing started, he was 49 and, a man having that age is still able to beat up a 18 years old lady.. I don´t know... I guess the years went by and she lost the faith to escape of that nightmare..

I agree with you regarding the mother's reaction, is so confusing :? ... My question would be: why didn´t she try to contact her daughter? I mean if she were involve in a cult or something like that, at least she would´ve tried to talk to her and try to convince her to come back home... That's any mother would do, isn´t it?... Didn´t she worried about her daugther´s life?. Was she so convince of his husband´s words that she´d never tried to look for her?...

But there are some things I don't understand! What about the woman's mother? Didn't she ever notice anything? How could she not suspect anything?!

This is what I'm dying to know. They say mothers have own instincts when things happen to their offspring. I guess this doesn't seem to apply to this case. She let things slipped by because of a note that the daughter, an eleven years old kid, had left the house and joined some "cult" ??? Did she even try to inform the police? Did she think it was kidnapping? How could she not know that her husband had been sleeping with "another woman"?? Don't women always get the feelings that their husbands are physically cheating on them? I do not understand it... :?

Well, people in the past could do it, so I guess we still can. Despite this fact, I still think this is quite illogical. I think there was a person who helped her going through labor. I don't think it was him. The question is, who was that person?

She was raped when she was 11. I think that's why it seems like she has no desire to escape this nightmare because most kids tend to take the fault as their own when horrible things happened to them, especially when they haven't done anything wrong. Well, not only kids do that, some adults do it as well. Like last time I was watching an interview between Oprah and the writer, Maya Angelou. Dr. Angelou said she was raped when she was six or seven. And she told other people about the raping. The rapist was put in jail afterwards. However, several days later the police told her family that the man was kicked to death. She stopped talking from that point on, for she thought she was responsible for his death. She thought her voice had killed him. That's why she was scared to speak. She was afraid if she spoke, her words would kill someone.

I think this woman might have some similar feelings. I assume that her father had told her too many reasons why she was put in the cellar. Day after day he brainwashed her with those lies to the point that she believed she deserved to be there. Anyway, I'd love to hear her voice. I'd like to know if she ever tried to escape the place. Also, I'd like to know the things she'd done during that twenty-plus years.

It's a very big chance that she was involved. Otherwise, she just seems pretty dumb. I wonder if they ever interview the poor daughter. And I'm very curious to know why only some of her children were given to the "grandparents"

Yes. As far as I know, one of the babies died, she kept 3 locked with her and the other 3 were living with their "grandparents". Why? I would like to know that as well, Lennye.

Last time, I was talking to my friends about this, and one of them said, "the sick "grandniece" was a lucky one; otherwise, he would have done her, too." I almost barfed after hearing this. How disgusting! :evil:

So, she has one kid died and one is having an unknown disease. I wonder if the rest are normal. It'd suck if they're retarded.
