In April 2008 the world was stunned by revelations of one of the most horrific cases of abuse ever recorded. Fritzl: Story of a Monster, 2010
Josef Fritzl, a respected businessman, father and husband was discovered to have held one of his own daughters captive in the cellar of the family home for twenty-four years. Over that period he repeatedly raped her. She bore him seven children. ibid.
On October 6th 1967 ... Josef Fritzl raped a local woman ... serving a year of an eighteen-month sentence. ibid.
The fourth of Rosemary and Josef’s seven children was Elizabeth, born in 1966. ibid.
Josef Fritzl has been writing begging letters to the daughter he locked up and raped in a secret dungeon for 24 years.
Every two weeks Fritzl, 74, pens a pleading note to daughter Elisabeth, 43, who suffered over 3,000 rapes at his hands and bore him seven incest children.
He says he needs money ‘to study to be a lawyer so I can defend myself’ – but Elisabeth never replies.
In some of the notes he asks for £3,500 to ‘get me started’ on his legal career.
He even moans about not being able to get special shampoo he claims he needs for his implanted hair.
Elisabeth is building a new life with the six children who survived the cellar hell beneath the family home in Amstetten, Austria, after she was freed in 2008.
The seventh child died three days after birth; Fritzl is serving a life sentence for his death and the rapes.
He was sentenced in March last year after dramatically reversing his not guilty pleas on multiple charges when he saw Elisabeth suddenly enter the courtroom.
From his cell at the psychiatric top security prison of Stein in Austria he bombards Elisabeth with the letters, seeking in turn forgiveness, money, understanding – and expressing the misguided hope that he will one day be free to spend his life with wife Rosemarie again.

Cersei Lannister: I don’t want to talk about Tywin Lannister. I don’t choose Tywin Lannister. I don’t love Tywin Lannister. I love my brother. I love my lover. [She kneels] People will whisper, they’ll make their jokes. Let them! They’re all so small, I can’t even see them. I only see what matters.
Jaime Lannister: Someone will walk in.

And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
Come, let us make our father drink wine, and we will lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night: and the firstborn went in, and lay with her father; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
And it came to pass on the morrow, that the firstborn said unto the younger, Behold, I lay yesternight with my father: let us make him drink wine this night also; and go thou in, and lie with him, that we may preserve seed of our father.
And they made their father drink wine that night also: and the younger arose, and lay with him; and he perceived not when she lay down, nor when she arose.
Thus were both the daughters of Lot with child by their father.
And the first born bare a son, and called his name Moab: the same is the father of the Moabites unto this day.
And the younger, she also bare a son, and called his name Benammi: the same is the father of the children of Ammon unto this day. Genesis 19:30-38
She is the daughter of my father, but not the daughter of my mother, and she became my wife. Genesis 20:12, Abraham to Abimelech
And for his sister a virgin, that is nigh unto him, which hath had no husband; for her may he be defiled. Leviticus 21:3
Thou hast ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; thou hast ravished my heart with one of thine eyes, with one chain of thy neck.
How fair is thy love, my sister, my spouse! how much better is thy love than wine! and the smell of thine ointments than all spices! Song of Solomon 4:9&10
I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.
I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night. Song of Solomon 5:1&2
