I decided I would start a series of "Notable Child Abuse Survivors" When I started doing my research I couldn't believe how many there was.
Many of us know the song Brahm's Lullabye. A famous song many of us hear in hospitals today when a baby is born, that we sang to our own babies. But how many of us really know about the famous German composer behind the song?
Johannes Brahms use perform piano in bars. His parents used the prostitutes in the bar as his "child care". It was there in those bars he was molested over several years by the prostitutes.
Latter in life he confessed he was unable to relate to woman, as well unable to perform sexually. He did develop a close relationship with a friend's wife after his death. He confessed his love for Clara though they never married. He was never married or developed a relationship with another woman.
He died in 1897 at age 63, cause of death was listed as degeneration of the liver.
