Stock­holm syndrome is named after the bank robbery in Stock­holm in 1973. Several bank em­ploy­ees were held hostage in a bank vault for 6 days and became emo­tion­al­ly attached to their captors and even defended them after they were freed. Stock­holm Syndrome does not nec­es­sar­i­ly require a hostage sce­nari­o. Es­sen­tial­ly, victims mistake a lack of abuse from their op­pres­sors for an act of kind­ness.
