The cartoon is based during world war 2 and it is about a girl who lives in the woods, She makes friends with the animals, including a wolf who she gradually seems to tame. I think she may be Jewish, I forget which country it is based in. Most of the violent scenes in this cartoon are real life footage of world war 2.

The animation is sometimes in the same scene as the real life footage of world war 2. its like a blend of a movie and a cartoon. I saw this as a young child and forget its name. It was also sad and a bit emotional.

Edit, I think its a western cartoon and I remember it was pretty long.
I think the footage was black and white and the cartoon was in color.

Only thing I can think of is Survivre avec les loups: [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0962782/]

In 1942, the young Jewish girl Misha, her Russian mother Gerusha and her German father Reuven hide from the Germans in a small house in Ardennes, Belgium. Misha is very connected to her mother that advises her that if one day a person comes to her saying "love of my life", she would follow him or her without any question.

When her parents are captured by the Nazis, Misha is delivered to a German family and the abusive matriarch gives a bad treatment to the girl. However, she finds support in the family of Ernest and his deranged wife Marthe that supplies groceries to foster family. Misha loves Ernest's dogs and the old man gives a compass to her and tells that her parents have been sent to East to forced labor.

When the old couple is denounced for sheltering the girl and arrested by the Germans, Misha flees through the woods heading east. Along her journey seeking out her parents, she lives and survives with pack of wolves and crosses Germany, Poland reaching Ukraine. When she sees that Brussels have been released by the allied force, she returns to her hometown and reaches it in March 1945 almost dead, sick and with lice and malnourished.

That's based on the book Misha: A Mémoire of the Holocaust Years [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misha:_A_M%C3%A9moire_of_the_Holocaust_Years]. That's probably not it, but it's all I can think of. The only reason I remembered it is because the story turned out to be a fake.

Also: List of fictional feral children [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fictional_feral_children] Hope that helps. Cheers.

I think it was a single lone wolf the girl made friends with in the one I saw.
Thanks for the help anyway.
