Author Who Made Up Holocaust Memoir to Repay Her Publisher

The author of a global best-selling Holocaust memoir who later admitted it was pure fantasy has been ordered by a U.S. court to repay $22.5 million to her publisher, AFP reports.

U.S.-based Belgian writer Misha Defonseca's "Misha: A Memoire of the Holocaust Years" told the supposedly true tale of a Jewish girl who was cared for by a pack of wolves and killed a Nazi soldier during World War II.
