Misha was only 6 when her parents were taken away to Auschwitz. She was given a new name, a new home, and forced into a new religion. No-one told her why her parents were no longer with her, only that they had gone East. So one day, equipped only with a tiny compass and a few provisions, she set out to find them. Misha crossed Belgium,
Germany and Poland on foot alone - until, close to starvation in a vast forest, she was adopted by a family of wolves who fed and protected her. At the end of the war she found her way home to Belgium. She never found her parents. One of the most extraordinary and poignant survival stories to come out of World War II.
