Misha and the Wolves


A Holocaust memoir published in the 1990s stunned the world: it told the incredible survival story of Misha Defonseca, a young Belgian-Jewish girl who, following the deportation of her parents, decided to walk to Germany to look for them. With just a few supplies and a compass, she navigated in the frozen woods, helped by a pack of wolves.

The book’s huge success prompted not only numerous TV appearances and a film adaptation but also the growing suspicion of an American publisher with whom Defonseca had had a fallout. The tangled web of deception the publisher subsequently exposed brought to light a bizarre hoax – and our full readiness to fall for it. This gripping, thought-provoking documentary proves, yet again, that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.
