Storyboard Text

  • Audrey Hepburn was born on May 4th, 1929, an English father and a Dutch mother in Belgium. Since her father was an insurance agent, her family moved around a lot. 
  • In 1935, her parents divorced. The main reason why they divorced was because her father was a Nazi supporter. She later describes the divorce as very traumatizing and was one of the most traumatic thing that has happened in her life.
  • After the war, despite suffering from being under the Nazis, Audrey tracked down her father and found him in Dublin. Out of her kindness and willingness to help an abandoned family member, she decided to support her father financially. 
  • While Audrey was living in the Netherlands, it became overrun by Nazis and it turned very brutal very quickly. During this time, she considered taking Ballet as a career. She would dance in various locations and raise money for the underground movement (Kindertransport). Later, she became committed to the UNICEF children's charity
  • After 15 years of acting, Audrey decided to act only occasionally. She spent more time with her family and working with UNICEF. She was appointed as a special ambassador for UNICEF and soon became actively involved in campaigns to improve conditions for children all around the world. 
  • In 1988, she visited a camp for children in Ethiopia. Once she saw the poverty & starvation, she became extremely upset and horrified. "I have a broken heart. I feel desperate. I can't stand the idea that two million people are in imminent danger of staving to death, many of them children, and not because there isn't tons of food sitting in the northern port of Shoa."
