Audrey Hepburn lived through the HungerWinter, when Nazis blockaded the Netherlands causing 18,000 deaths. Hepburn, 16, ate tulip bulbs and tried to make bread from grass. Her sylph-like figure was a legacy of the jaundice, anaemia, respiratory problems and chronic blood disorders she contracted in those days of terrible starvation. She refused the lead in "Diary of Anne Frank" because it brought back bad memories, and until her death whe worked with UNICEF to feed children.Savanna Nave
