This sounds interesting. Brief synopsis of an article at nypost.com by Raquel Laneri: Nowhere Girl, a work of non-fiction by Cheryl Diamond, 34, details her life as the child of fugitive parents, 20 years, five continents. She never went to school, was taught by her dad, who had laws: “Always be loyal to our family — for we will never betray each other. Trust no one — they are outsiders. And be a criminal — but be a noble one.”

Last night Heroes & Icons, channel 9–4 on ota in NYC, ran Fly Away Home, Season Three, Episode Eight of Combat!, first broadcast in 1964. It is notable because the guest star is Neville Brand, an actual WWII hero.
