Two years ago, Grace Stocken heard an item on Woman's
Hour that changed her life.

3rd birthday, she and her twin sister were collected from
Liverpool Street Station and taken to live in Wales with a Baptist minister and his wife. They changed her name from Susi to Grace and told her she was an orphan. Fifty years on, that radio broadcast set her off on a mission to discover the truth. The trail led to New
York, Munich and Leipzig. What she finally uncovered was more than she could ever have hoped for. Producer Sally George Editor Caroline Pick
