Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War II

I have always loved and admired Audrey Hepburn. After reading this, my love, admiration, and respect for her have grown exponentially. In all the years teaching WW2, I never presented it from the viewpoint of someone who actually lived under Nazi occupation. What Audrey Hepburn endured during WWII stayed with her the rest of her life. Nevertheless, she carried herself with grace and elegance, never complaining or making excuses. She used her experience to help others. She remembered that when the Nazis were defeated, UNICEF arrived with food and supplies that were so desperately needed, and this led her to eventually become a UNICEF Ambassador. She went from nearly dying as a child in WWII to becoming one of the most beloved icons of her time. Anyone who reads DUTCH GIRL will walk away truly inspired. I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves Audrey Hepburn or loves history.
