  3. Hi, Judith, Nice to see you on web… after I read your sister’s book. Its fascinating story and gave me some conscious about another part of my homeland, Indonesia.


  4. Dear Judith,

    we’ve just watched the film Dschungelkind and I kept telling my familiy, this story sounds like the story of my friend Judith, who I met in Cardiff and we spent quite a bit of time together there. I searched the web for your name, found your blog straight away and here I’m writing to get back in touch with you.

    Do you remember our time in Cardiff? I used to be called Heinke Müller. I don’t know, how we lost touch, but I’d love to get back in touch with you and catch up quite a few years.

    Looking forward to hearing from you!

    Take care,


  5. HI Judith. Probably, a lot of people talk to you about your sister. Her book made me think a lot about the sense of family and faith. I am a artist, I paint and write. I used to sing and act and I worked as voice teacher.
    I have been very sick for the last 10 years. My art and my faith are my remedy.
    But I don’t want to talk about your sister even if I loved her book ! I want to learn more about you and your art. What inspires you ? How your childwood influenced you as a person and as a artist?


  6. Hi,
    My name is Leonie,
    I have to do a presentation next week to pass my exams (up to GSCEs).
    I love the book “DasDschungelkind” and I chosed your sister as my theme. It would be wonderful if you could tell her this and mabey she could contact me. Thank you very much in advance.


  7. Vielleicht kannst du ja noch ein wenig Deutsch und nimmst meine Grüße an. Ich habe mir heute das Dschungelkind angeschaut und bin sehr angetan von dem Leben da *draußen* … lächel.
    Ganz besonders gefallen hat mir diese unbändige Freude, die ihr beim Anblick von Schnee hattet.
    Ganz lieben Gruß aus Gemany … sissi

  9. From Papua New Guinea with quadrillions of heart felt thanks to your family, especially the zeal, determination, love and passion your parents had for our Fayu people across the border. Appreciate you and your younger siblings (Jungle girl Sabine and Christian) for accompanying your parents and sacrificing your childhood for our people. Your riches are stored up in Heaven by Anutu (God). Dange!

Liebe Grüße Ilona (geb.Kuhn) Lofink
