Misha was seven years old when the Nazis took her Jewish parents away from her. It was 1941 in German-occupied Belgium. She was given a new name, a new home, a new religion to save her from the Germans. She did not know what had happened to her parents only that they had gone East. Misha decided to go and find them, alone and on foot, she crossed Belgium, Germany and Poland and survived by hiding in forests and stealing food from farmhouses. Close to death and starving she was befriended by a family of wolves, eating and playing with wolf cubs and protected by the wolf cubs mother. These were th happiest moments of her troubled life. Misha always believed she would eventually find her parents, and kept on walking for four years. She encounted unspeakable horrors along the way and at one point, she was forced to kill a German soldier to save her own life. Eventually, via the Ukraine, Romania and Italy, she found her way home to Belgium
