More misty water-coloured memoirs. The tampering, this time, comes from a Holocaust survivor from Belgium:

Defonseca wrote in her book that Nazis seized her parents when she was a child, forcing her to wander the forests and villages of Europe alone for four years. She claimed she found herself trapped in the Warsaw ghetto, killed a Nazi soldier in self-defense and was adopted by a pack of wolves that protected her.

I’m less shocked at the thought that none of this was true, than at the thousands of readers who believed it was. Smacks upside the head for all you.
