She was held as a hostage by her own father in an underground cellar and tortured with no escape. Of course, she did come out when she got the chance.
The beginning of chaos
Young Elisabeth Fritzl of 18 years went missing on 28th august 1984. Then, her mother Rosemarie Fritzl filed a complaint about her missing daughter. Of course, there were no new findings of her which led her parents to assume the worst. But, they got a letter, appearing from Elisabeth.

Well, the truth is, Josef exactly knew where Elisabeth was present. Yes, she was present in an underground cellar of her home.
How it all began…
On the day that she went missing, Josef asked Elisabeth to come into the newly built basement. Well, the fresh cellar needed a refitting to the door. So, he asked for his daughter’s help. As she held it, he finished the fixing work. But, now he opened the door and pushed his daughter inside. Also, with ether, she made her unconscious.
Well, for the next 24 years, Elisabeth would only see the cellar’s dirty wall. In addition, her father will keep lying and making stories about her. And, with the investigations about her having no leading clues, everything becomes silent.
The beginning of the horror
For Josef’s wife, her husband was a hardworking man. After all, every morning at 9’o clock he went into the basement to design plans for the machines. Sometimes, he will stay overnight to work on his project. Of course, such actions will give an impression that he was a man dedicated to his work.
But, from Elisabeth Fritzl’s perspective, he was a complete monster. In the Elisabeth Fritzl interview, she told that he would visit her at least 3 times a week. Otherwise, he would come to her every day. Still, he started to rape her after keeping her for 2 years under captivity.
