Secrets of the Austrian Cellar- The Story of Elisabeth Fritzl

This was the case heard around the world a few years ago. Still brings shivers down my spine.
Here’s a brief summary: Joseph Fritzl, Elisabeth’s father, built a cellar and trapped Elisabeth inside for 24 yrs. 
During this time, Elisabeth was raped every few days and gave birth to 7 children. 
Some of the children spent their entire life in the cellar. 
After 24 yrs of incarceration, Elisabeth and her children were hospitalized in a psychiatric facility to start their lengthy recovery. 

Joseph Fritzl is currently serving a life sentence.
