We Are Wolves

Katrina Nannestad


We Are Wolves (2021) by Australian children's writer, Katrina Nannestad, is the extraordinary story of 3 children left to fend for themselves at the end of WWII.

The story begins in October 1944 in East Prussia. The children's father has been constricted but soon the Russian army breaks through the German lines and the rest of the family - 11 year old Liesl, 7 year old Otto, and toddler Mia plus their mother and grandparents abandon the farm.

It's not long before the children are on their own and having a range of 'adventures' including meeting up with other orphaned German children known as "wolf children".
