Brave girl who refused to play the victim

3,096 Days by Natascha Kampusch (2010) Paperback - Natascha Kampusch

Natasha Kampusch tell her own story about her captivity for years as a child. Being starved, beaten, abused, raped, and still stay alive in her mind so much that she could escape by herself.


She is strong inside. She is also a person who refused to see the only person who she grow up with as pure evil. Refusing to play into mass sympathy, she didn't play the role of victim, instead, she shows herself as an survivor. 


My kind of person who refused to use her situation to get sympathy. 


I dislike the victim playing persons who use all kind of excuse in order to stay irresponsible. 


They should read this book and know what a strong person sounds like.
