    when i saw this show last year on the tv, i had to say to myself, the mother has to be a part if this whole operation. Otherwise, it would not have lasted as long as it had. Honestly, only a sick pervert would do this to their kid. i grew up in a home where one parent got really jealous of how much time us kids spent with the other parent, and would play mind games with us kids to make us think that we weren’t loved by the other parent. its not easy adjusting to life outside that particular kind of home enviroment. Especially when you have a jealous type of personality now. i wish and hope for the best now for all of those kids and their mother, especially,since she is not capable of surviving in the outside world after what her perverted father has done to her.

    I agree that Rosemarie is an accomplice. That b*tch is probably so jealous of her shapely, beautiful daughter who has “stolen” her husband’s heart. Some women are very mean when they become inferior or jealous. I grew up in a country where jealous women would splash poisonous chemical on their husbands’ lovers in hope to make them becoming deformed and destroyed. So, this b*tch who was called “fat” and “below standard” by her sick husband would take vengence on her beautiful daughter all along the unimaginable 24 years. She, too, should be r*t in jail, and fed all the ugliest foods possible! What kind of a b*tch for Elisabeth to have as a mother. I pray for the future of the Fritzls and I hope that the world would be kind to them all as they have suffered so much already.

    I seriously hope Josef Friztl is brutally raped as many times as possible before he either dies or kills himself.

    But most of all I hope that Elisabeth and her family can somehow now have a good, peaceful life.

    Shame on Austria for being so clueless.

    I second that definately. what do you say? So many things that I would like to see happen to this whathave you whatever you call it piece of. so as to somehow free Elizabeth’s soul from the hell it has been put through and recover to obtain some justice if it is even possible to have a clean breath of fresh air of freedom that she is really done, free, not being lied to etc. that it is over the nightmare instead of more stale air of excuse after lie after cover up after pathetic apathetic illtreatment of the wholen thing. The grotesque unfairness of the prosecution alone in all this is also so demonic and cowardly like said not questioning the mother. Austria must be the heart of darkness

    That is so disgusting.
    How can someone do that to their own daughter?!
    He should be punished badly.

  6. Helen

    In response to comment 6. – Liz’s suggestion that ‘all we can do is pray for Elizabeth and her family’ I beg to differ!
    Firstly, as an atheist I do not have any belief in the effectiveness of prayer beyond the placebo effect.
    Furthermore, there IS a great deal we can do, in particular the inhabitants of Austria, to change a culture in which they pride themselves in their ability to:-
    1.Have a legal system in which all sentences can run concurrently and the maximum sentence this evil bastard will get is 15 years for his crimes unless found gulity of murder.
    2.Bury their heads in the sand.
    3.Mind their own business.
    4.Respect eachother’s privacy no matter how bizarre someone’s behaviour or actions might be.
    5.Ignore the possibility that a distressed teenager may have run away FOR A REASON – instead of just allowing her father to drag her back home.
    6.Bury or prevent access to criminal records of a rapist who is then allowed to legally adopt and foster children.
    6.Fail to suspect or adaquately interrogate a wife who regularly assisted her rapist husband with transporting a wheelbarrow full of food to a cellar for a family of five etc. etc.
    “All we can do is pray”…MY ARSE!!!
    If that deranged, arrogant, egomaniac is sentenced to 12-15 years and released after 7 then he will need more than a name change, facelift and further hair transplant to save himself from being ripped to pieces by an angry mob. It would be better for him to spend his remaining pathetic life locked up in solitary confinement, I only wish that prisoners like him were not treated with kid gloves, given access to computers, televisions, newspapers, games rooms. All he deserves is to be held in a dark, windowless room and fed slops, with no visitors and just a toilet, basin and uncomfortable canvas camp-bed. However he should have his door left unlocked occasionally along with the doors of the most violent criminals of wherever he ends up.

  7. Sarah

    I agree that mother knew things and just closed her eyes to the weird goings on of this freak,josef. Alot of women close their eyes to things so they don’t have to change their life and leave him. She and her husband should be locked in there and rot forever.

  8. Liz

    All we can do is pray for Elizabeth and her family.

    Dear Reader,

    Thank you for sharing. There were eye witnesses who said they saw Rosemarie helping to carry bags into the basement. It is not clear why the police did not pursue this matter. Rosemarie wanted Elizabeth’s children she reared to continue to call her mother instead of grandmother. These are two disturbing facts.

  10. Reader

    Here is a comment that I would like to make
    about Josef Fritzl and his wife Rosemarie …

    Clearly that “person” (and one has to stretch the
    definition of the word “person” in order to apply
    it to that creature) known to the world as Josef
    Fritzl was / is the DEVIL-INCARNATE —- AND
    he should burn in h*ll for all of eternity for his evil.

    In addition, it also needs to be stated that no person
    on earth should allow themselves be fooled for
    even one moment by the lies of “I didn’t know”
    that are currently being claimed by that lying
    and equally evil wife of this evil DEVIL!!!

    That vile, evil, perverted, disgusting, devil
    b**tch of a wife of that MONSTER KNEW!!

    SHE KNEW!!! SHE KNEW!!! SHE KNEW!!!

    She KNEW the whole time (or at least had
    literally no excuse whatsoever to have not
    at least ‘suspected’ something was amiss!!!)

    She is a LIAR and she must think the entire world is
    as perverted as both she and her husband are and
    that by coming up with that ridiculous and flimsy
    excuse that she can then convince the rest of
    the world to then respond to her own complicity
    the same way she chose to respond to that of
    her husband’s evil — by ‘turning a blind eye’.

    BOTH of them are utter DEVILS and one
    cannot help but to hope that they both burn
    in h*ll for all of eternity for their evil acts!!!!

    She expects anyone on this planet who has even
    half-a-brain-stem to believe for even one fraction
    of a moment that she didn’t know anything at all?!?!

    Give me a break!!!

    For crying out loud–unless this woman is Helen
    Keller –she has NO EXCUSE at all to not have
    known (or at least ’suspected’) something strange
    and conspiratorial was going on regarding her
    daughter’s whereabouts and situation and that the
    husband’s stories were just far too incredulous
    and absolutely made no sense in the least bit!!!

    After all — think about it — daughter runs away as a
    very young teen; daughter mysteriously disappears
    at the age of 18 (an age when she can both make
    her own decisions and choose to get away from
    her father and even bring charges against him); the
    (convicted-rapist/arsonist) father gets a letter from
    daughter 1 month after her disappearance which
    ridiculously claims she has joined a cult and does
    not want to have any contact with the family – yet
    amazingly then later chooses (for 3 years in a row)
    to simply leave 3 of her newborn babies on the
    doorstep of very home that she tried to run away
    from at least 2 X’s before and is “allegedly thought”
    to have finally left in order to join some sort of
    “phantom” cult (a “cult” which, unlike every other
    cult, just somehow, seemingly has no desire to try
    to indoctrinate the youth from birth, but rather it
    simply allows it’s members to select a home –one
    which in fact, is both not a part of the cult AND is
    the very home from which the member ran in order
    to join the cult —to raise their babies and kids of
    the cult members) –ALL THE WHILE – the father
    forbids ANYONE to ever for ANY REASON dare to
    go ANYWHERE NEAR the mysterious basement
    (which he always keeps locked, disappears to for
    hours and days on end; has ‘unseen’ bathroom
    equipment installed; and has a cement-barricaded
    door installed which both has a security-code and
    which was so complicated it needed inspection
    by local government authorities in order to install).

    Just 2 years before the “discovery” of what this
    monster (and his devil wife via her complicity of
    silence) did to their poor child – another young girl,
    and former kidnap victim, was also found in Austria.

    It was discovered that the other young kidnap /
    rape victim had disappeared 8 years earlier and
    had been held in a basement / dungeon where
    she had been repeatedly raped the entire time
    by the individual who had also kidnapped her.

    Now —- even if the public was expected to
    simply throw all common sense to the wind
    and accept this monster’s devil-wife’s excuse
    that she “didn’t know”, say, in the beginning …
    it still stands to reason that after hearing about
    the case of the other young girl 2 years earlier
    —– this creep’s equally creepy wife would
    have said something to herself like, say …

    ”””Hmmm … a young girl who disappeared 8 years
    ago, out of no where, has been discovered
    to have been held in a basement the entire
    time and while there she was repeatedly
    raped by the person who trapped her there.

    Hmmm … my daughter, who repeatedly tried
    to run away from my convicted-rapist husband
    as a child has also mysteriously disappeared
    – and – my convicted-rapist husband is
    always coming across both ‘letters’ and
    ‘grandchildren’ that were allegedly left
    by my daughter (who has vanished
    without a trace) — and – meanwhile
    my convicted-rapist husband also
    has a mysterious basement that he
    keeps under lock and key and never
    allows anyone to come near — ever.

    Hmmm … now I cannot help but to wonder
    if that convicted-rapist husband I married
    just may have had something to do with
    the disappearance of our daughter – and
    — the appearance of all these grandkids
    and letters – and I also can’t help but to
    wonder if that mystery-basement room
    of his would, in some way / in any way,
    be connected somehow to our child’s
    disappearance and / or the mysterious
    appearance of all of these grandchildren.”””

    Yes – one would think that – even if this woman
    could have claimed ‘ignorance’ earlier – (a lie
    which, again, no one with any common sense
    should ever consider buying into) – once the
    discovery was made of a similar situation 2
    years earlier – she then had NO excuse to not
    have at least been suspicious of something
    about her convicted-rapist husband and his
    ever-so-mysterious hidden basement room.

    That vicious devil simply did not care at all about
    her own daughter – or — she simply cared more
    about her own creature-comforts and keeping up
    with her middle-class appearances than she did
    about the torture being done to her own child.

    THAT POOR GIRL’S VILE, DISGUSTING
    PERVERTED LYING B*TCH OF A MOTHER
    KNEW FULL WELL WHAT WAS GOING ON
    – SHE KNEW– SHE KNEW– SHE KNEW!!!

    THAT WIFE IS A B*TCH, A DEVIL AND A
    VILE PERVERT AND ONE CANNOT HELP
    BUT TO TRULY HOPE THAT— SINCE SHE
    OBVIOUSLY FELT SOME STRANGE NEED
    TO BE SO VERY LOYAL TO THAT DEVIL,
    OF A PERVERTED CONVICTED-RAPIST
    AND ARSONIST FREAK OF A HUSBAND
    OF HERS AND TO CHOOSE TO STAND BY
    HIS SIDE FOR A QUARTER OF A CENTURY
    ALL THE WHILE THAT HE IMPRISONED
    AND ALSO SEXUALLY AND PHYSICALLY
    AND MENTALLY TORTURED THEIR
    CHILD — SHE WILL REMAINS BY
    HIS SIDE AS THEY BOTH BURN
    IN H*LL FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!!

    She is clearly as much of a
    pervert and devil as is he!!

    Would anyone even be remotely surprised
    if further investigation later revealed that
    ‘Rosemarie Fritzl’ (who is actually trying to
    get the world to see her as a co-victim of
    her daughter’s horrific nightmare of a life)
    was actually just another ‘Rosemary West’
    (a woman whose husband also originally –
    and falsely – claimed that she had nothing
    to do with his unbelievably evil sex crimes)?

    What kind of a woman, after all, chooses to marry
    (or remained married to) a man who had already
    committed and also been convicted of previously
    raping another woman and has shown absolutely
    no remorse about any of it whatsoever in the least.

    SHE KNEW!!! SHE KNEW!!! SHE KNEW!!!

    I completely agree with keeping the identiy private it is for the safety of her and the kids. I hope that they do make another documentary that will give more information to the questions that most people have about this situation, so that everyone can have more of an understanding how this happened and why. It is terrible for a father to even have the thought of doing this to his own child and how her mother was never suspicios about this. I think most people blame Elizabeths mother more than anybody. Unless we are in that situation nobody would never know what we would do. My heart goes out to Elizabeth

  12. Angie

    Shawna,

    Thanks for commenting. I guess there is a social stigma, either real or imagined. Incest, rape, children born from incest etc are very serious issues. No matter how accepting some people are, there are others who will harm the young Fritzls.
    .
    The diet was unbalanced, or lacking in the full pyramid of food types. Money was an issue with Josef Fritzl as he spent on his holidays but was calculative on bills like his weekly expenditures to the hookers.
    .

  13. Shawna

    I watched the show the longest night,Some of the things that I seen in the movie doesn’t add up to some of the things that I read. I understand that she wants to protect her ID, but it seems that she doesn’t want to say what really happened during her imprisonment. Everyone thinks that there was someone helping him she would know why isn’t she saying if there was. Why were they malnurished if he was giving them food and she was cooking? Did she ever try the door to see if it was unlocked ever? The documentary left out alot of things that could of been answered by her. She was never found because of nobody checking into her disappearance,I would hope she would want to tell the world about what happened, hoping that her story could keep this from happening to another girl. I know that if my story could keep this from happening to just one person I would do it and I did do it. She isn’t the first person to be held like this unfortunately there story didn’t keep it from happening to Elizabeth. My prayers are with the family and I hope the Lord will guide them.
