by Norman Eisen
6 September 2018
After World War I, Otto Petschek, a Jewish banker, built a magnificent palace in Prague. When the Germans come to power, the Petscheks had to abandon their home and to flee Prague.

Elli Radinger has been observing wild wolves for over 25 years. This wolf expert shares with us her discoveries on the intelligence of these animals, and their ability to devote themselves to others, even if it means sacrificing their own life. She proves wrong everything we have heard about wolves since our childhood and reveals unknown facts on their life and behaviour. The myth of the big bad wolf, agressive and solitary, is completely untrue. If you love nature, animals and adventures, this book is for you!
