Pupa became that little girl's best friend and secret keeper, until the end of her life in 2005.
Since then, Pupa has been kept in a display cabinet, which she does not seem to like at all...
Alive with a Will of Her Own
The little girl who owned Pupa often stated that her doll was 'alive' and had a will of its own. She stated that she and Pupa would talk often throughout the years, that Pupa held all of her secrets and was a help in hard times – even going so far as to have saved her life.
Pupa and her owner travelled quite extensively throughout Europe and the United States. At the end of World War II the little girl’s grandmother passed away, so as a memento and a way to remember her, a button from her grandmother’s clothes was sewn onto Pupa’s dress.
According to the family that keeps Pupa under their care, the doll really does not like being confined, and they have had several interesting experiences that seem to verify this. At times the glass cabinet is heard to tap, like something is trying to draw your attention. Soon after this, they began to notice that the doll has changed position within the cabinet – her arms will be in a different position, legs crossed or uncrossed, but most interesting of all is the subtle changes in expression they have noticed over the years.
Items in the case with her are also moved around, sometimes haphazardly, and at other times done with more purpose.
Those who have investigated Pupa say that they have recorded the doll moving, but the movements are so slow they essentially go undetected by the human eye, but photos and videos taken over long duration and compared show these movements quite easily.
The dolls location is kept quite secret. As such I cannot tell you which town, or even which country the doll can be found in.
As for who or what haunts the doll? Well that is a hard one to answer, but many think that maybe it was part of the childhood 'spirit' of that dolls owner, a part of her essence imparted on this object she so loved and cherished, and that with her passing, that spirit became stronger, maybe even completed within the doll itself.
