review ´ Dutch Girl Audrey Hepburn and World War II Twenty five years after her passing Audrey Hepburn remains the most beloved of all Hollywood stars known as much for her role as UNICEF ambassador as for films like Roman Holiday and Breakfast at Tiffany’s Several biographies have chronicled her stardom but none has covered her intense experiences through five years of Nazi occupation in the Netherlands According to her son Luca Dotti “The war made my mother who she was?. An interesting well written and well researched account of Audrey Hepburn and her experiences through five years of Nazi Occupation of the Netherlands Some readers who may be interested in her film career might be a little disappointed in this one as it delves in the Audrey s life through the war in the Netherlands which was fascinating to read and after with her movie career and her work with Children and UNICEF I really enjoyed this book because it chronicles her war Experiences as a participant in the Dutch Resistance working as a doctor s assistant and her ballet career The book focuses on the effect that the war had on Audrey Hepburn and her family We also learn uite a lot about her mother and father who were Nazi sympathizers at the beginning of the war The Nazi s occupation and atrocities in the Netherlands is very well detailed and very well researched in this book I rarely read books o
