book Review: Dutch girl: audrey hepburn and world war II

Dutch Girl: Audrey Hepburn and World War 2 by author Robert Matzen. Reviewed by Maria Mitchell, courtesy of The Crow and Dagger blog.

A lifelong Audrey Hepburn fan, I have read quite a few books about Audrey’s life but this book contained a few gems I had never read about before. It was interesting learning that both of Audrey’s parents were supporters of Hitler before the war, the reasons why Audrey’s father left her at such a young age, Audrey’s love of dance, the murder of her uncle, her similarities with Anne Frank and Otto Frank asking her to play Anne in a movie, her efforts in the resistance, getting picked up by the Nazi’s and escaping, and so forth.


These facts were fascinating and some of them were new to me. However the majority of this book was about the war and her experiences through it. I find it’s difficult to keep books about war interesting because it’s not something I usually enjoy reading. So I found much of this book slow in pace and if I hadn’t loved reading about Audrey Hepburn so much I don’t know if I would have kept reading. Audrey Hepburn was a wonderful role model who lived much of her life in service of others, this book gave me an opportunity to learn how the war and her childhood shaped her to be a hero.

My rating: 3 out of 5 stars
