It might have something to do with the fact that those who tormented her were NOT people whom she expected to love her. They were monsters and their actions had nothing to do with her family and where and how she grew up. I know a very old woman who still has the numbers she was forced to wear burned into her skin decades ago by people who despised her and her family. They killed some of them. And yet she has been a successful business woman, mother, member of the community since she fled here all those years ago. And she is one of the loveliest people I have ever met. I think it has a lot to do with who the tormentor is. People may be able to survive the torment of strangers but almost never the torment of family and those from whom one expected kindness and love.
