On 2 March 1998 ten-year-old Natascha Kampusch was snatched off the street by a stranger and bundled into a white van. Hours later she found herself in a dark cellar, wrapped in a blanket. When she emerged eight years later, her childhood had gone.
In 3,096 Days Natascha tells her incredible story for the first time: her difficult childhood, what exactly happened on the day of her abduction, her imprisonment in a five-square-metre dungeon, and the mental and physical abuse she suffered from her abductor, Wolfgang Priklopil.
3,096 Days is ultimately a story about the triumph of the human spirit. It describes how, in a situation of almost unbearable hopelessness, she slowly learned how to manipulate her captor. And how, against inconceivable odds, she managed to escape unbroken.

A brave account of the horrors that this young woman survived.
The abuse that one adult person can inflict on a young child, is truly disgusting.
While the physical injuries will heal, I hope that the author can overcome the psychological injuries.
Time and only time will heal all wounds.
What a wonderful mature young lady. Such grace and forgiveness under appalling adverse conditions. Stay true to yourself and "Create the Life you want to Live."
