Elizabeth Smart is revealing the anguish she felt during her kidnapping as she promotes her upcoming memoir.

Smart, who is now 25-years-old, sat down for an interview with Meredith Vieira about the nine-month ordeal that began when she was taken from her home in the middle of the night on March 12, 2003.

‘To her I was a slave and to him I was an object,’ Smart said of her captors during a clip of the NBC interview.

The then-14-year-old Smart was taken by Brian David Mitchell and his wife Wanda Ileen Barzee who then hid her in the woods and raped her on an almost daily basis before she was found nine months later.
