Holocaust Author Proven a Liar and a Fraud
Ok, I don't care if you do not believe in Hell, but for the sake of Misha Defoseca, who wrote, "Misha: A Memoire of the Holocasut Years," there should be a reserved room. The lying author admits that her memoir is pure fantasy. Then again, why no one else thought a woman's claim of being raised by wolves was not just a tad far fetched, I don't know.
She is and blames it on the mind of a 4 year old, problem number two. I am not Jewish, but I have some great friends and aquaintances that were in the holocaust and suffered far more than any human being should, so for a woman to make a name off this autrocity just dictates that she go straight to hell, and do not collect $200 on the way.
I know, you think I am harsh, but you know, all she had to do was write a fiction book and let it stand on its own merit. She chose the coward's way by stealing another person's pain, and trying to make it her own;
When I was younger, I was an NA at a nursing facility. One of my patients was a man named Joseph. He had the number on his body that the Nazi's had put there. He suffered greatly in life, and died of cancer. So, for a liar to even think she had the right to tell the lies sends me over the edge.
Maybe publishers should ask for their money back if a memoir is proven to be a pack of lies(sorry about the pun). That would deter these memoir liars. The problem is that her family was killed by the Nazi's, so there was a story, but she did not want to admit that it was not her story. Oh, and here's the kicker; she's not even Jewish. Her real name is Monique De Wael . Are you feeling the outrage yet?
Well, Karma is that Defoseca has not been paid a court ordered sum of 22.5 million that her publisher (Mt. Ives) is supposed to pay. The publisher is going to see if it can be overturned, but the reality is that if she made money on the book then she owes it to Defoseca, no matter how dispicable she is. Actually maybe this is a case of two people that were made for each other since they both lied.
