Triumph: Life After the Cult–A Survivor’s Lessons

Triumph: Life After the Cult–A Survivor’s Lessons


The author of "The New York Times" bestseller "Escape" returns with a moving and inspirational tale of her life after she heroically fled the cult she’d been raised in, her hard-won new identity and happiness, and her determination to win justice for the crimes committed against her family. In 2003, Carolyn Jessop, 35, a lifelong member of the extremist Mormon sect the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), gathered up her eight children, including her profoundly disabled four-year-old son, and escaped in the middle of the night to freedom. Jessop detailed the story of her harrowing flight and the shocking conditions that sparked it in her 2007 memoir, "Escape." Reveling in her newfound identity as a bestselling author, a devoted mom, and a loving companion to the wonderful man in her life, Jessop thought she had put her past firmly behind her. Then, on April 3, 2008, it came roaring back in full view of millions of television viewers across America. On that date, the state of Texas, acting on a tip from a young girl who’d called a hotline alleging abuse, staged a surprise raid on the Yearning for Zion Ranch, a sprawling, 1700-acre compound near Eldorado, Texas, to which the jailed FLDS "prophet" Warren Jeffs had relocated his sect’s most "worthy" members three years earlier. The ranch was being run by Merril Jessop, Carolyn’s ex-husband and one of the cult’s most powerful leaders. As a mesmerized nation watched the crisis unfold, Jessop once more was drawn into the fray, this time as an expert called upon to help authorities understand the customs and beliefs of the extremist religious sect with which they were dealing. In "Triumph," Jessop tells the real, and even more harrowing, story behind the raid and sets the public straight on much of the damaging misinformation that flooded the media in its aftermath. She recounts the setbacks (the tragic decision of the Supreme Court of Texas to allow the children in state custody to return to their parents) as well as the successes (the fact that evidence seized in the raid is the basis for the string of criminal trials of FLDS leaders that began in October 2009 and will continue throughout 2010), all while weaving in details of her own life since the publication of her first book. These include her budding role as a social critic and her struggle to make peace with her eldest daughter’s heartbreaking decision to return to the cult. In the book’s second half, Jessop shares with readers the sources of the strength that allowed her not only to survive and eventually break free of FLDS mind control, but also to flourish in her new life. The tools of her transformation range from powerful female role models (grandmothers on both sides) to Curves fitness clubs (a secret indulgence that put her in touch with her body) to her college education (rare among FLDS women). With her characteristic honesty and stea

Ilie Wacs And Deborah Strobin, Holocaust Survivors, Search For SS Officer Alois, Who Saved Their Family On Kristallnacht

Ilie Wacs and Deborah Strobin will never forget the terror they felt as they hid inside their apartment in Austria while the sound of Nazi boots drew closer on November 9th and 10th in 1938. They didn’t make a sound on the fateful night of Kristallnacht, known to many Jews as “The Night of Broken Glass,” but their silence wasn’t the only reason that they and their family were spared from the violence.

Their deliverance came in an unexpected form — that of a young Nazi SS officer named Alois, who worked for their father, Mortiz Wachs, at his tailoring business in Vienna. Alois alerted the Wachs of the upcoming pogrom, and urged them to leave Austria before August 31, 1939, which was the day before Germany invaded Poland and World War II broke out.

Wacs, who was eleven at the time, recalls how Alois’ protection helped them remain safe on Kristallnacht in the book, “An Uncommon Journey,” that he co-authored with his sister, Deborah Strobin:

Alois came to our house. His tone was quite grave, and he convinced Papa that something terrible was going to happen. I could tell it was dangerous for him even to be seen in our home. He told Papa, “Gather your family tonight. Tell them to come here. Keep everyone inside. You will not be touched.”

Our building did not have an elevator, only stone steps. I stood inside the door, and I heard hobnail boots coming up, click, click, click, and click. I heard men’s voices. I heard the boots stop at our door, and then I heard them move on. They never even knocked. We were passed over. We were shielded by Alois. We were saved.

The family managed to escape into Italy, then to Shanghai, and the siblings now reside in New York City. They’ve recounted their family history in their book, “An Uncommon Journey,” but one question remains unanswered– what happened to Alois? Wacs and Strobin are on a mission to find him with the little information that they have, so they can honor him with the title of “Righteous Gentile.”

Wacs told The Huffington Post that if he found Alois or his descendants, “I would thank him for saving our lives.” He continued, “To me, it is somewhat of a mystery why a person would be willing to sacrifice his family– because that was what was at stake! But some people did it. If we do find him, he would deservedly be one of the Righteous Gentiles.”

He shared more thoughts about his experience, remarking that many people ask him questions about what he thinks is the moral of the story.

In response, Wacs said, “There is no moral. Life is random. Survival is primarily a matter of luck. We survived because of that man, but if that man hadn’t been around, we wouldn’t have survived. It’s difficult to draw moral conclusions.”

Recalling how he and his family stayed alive, Wacs commented, “The only thing I keep saying, is that the only thing you can do in situations like that, is to be optimistic.”

The siblings will share their story on November 10th at the Simon Wiesenthal Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles, marking the 75th anniversary of Kristallnacht. This follows an art opening on Thursday, November 7th, at the Museum of Tolerance New York, which will host a month-long showing of Wac’s artwork. The exhibit, “A Gathering Storm: The Vienna Papers, 1938” is a collection that draws inspiration from the official documents associated with their lives and identities.
