But the incorrect behavior of my husband's mother, and especially my husband's beatings and brutal behavior, didn't give me this chance. I was not the daughter-in-law of that house, I was the slave or servant....They punched and kicked me on my face. They tied my hands with a rope and beat me with chains, sticks and a whip. I spent days and weeks in the basement of the house with my hands and feet tied up. They forced me to work in the cold and snow...There is no part of my body which is not injured. The nails of my hands have fallen, and my feet don't have the strength to move...."
