Elly Ligertwood (née von Hunkar) grew up near Ptuj, in today's Slovenia, latterly part of Yugoslavia. She had a happy childhood in a large, bustling house, with cousins and au pairs frequently visiting from England. In 1941, after the Nazi occupation, she was sent to cousins in Hungary to avoid joining the Bund Deutscher Madchen (the League of German Girls).

As the Russians approached in 1945, Elly got herself back home alone on trains strafed by allied bombers, nourished for days by a single bag of plums.
