CNN has a story about how this woman’s memoir was a hoax. My question: who actually believed the story in the first place?
she made up her best-selling “memoir” depicting how, as a Jewish child, she lived with a pack of wolves in the woods during the Holocaust… the author acknowledged her story was not autobiographical and that she did not trek 1,900 miles as a child across Europe with a pack of wolves in search of her deported parents during World War II.
So what? No one thought to themselves, “did this four year old really get adopted by a pack of wolves and wander through war torn Europe with them, searching for her parents?”
