The Audrey Hepburn Story
During one dance class, Teen Audrey is given high praise by her instructor just before the headmistress calls her out of class to tell her that she has to go home. England and France have declared war on Germany, and her mother and uncle want her at home in Holland. Teen Audrey balks at the idea and asks if she wouldn't be safer in England. The headmistress reads a portion of her mother's letter which says that Holland is neutral (and weak, and small, and totally unable to protect itself) and that her mother's cousin is a cabinet minister who assures them that Holland will not enter the war. Teen Audrey forgets about war when she hears that her father will meet her in London in order to get her onto the plane to Holland. At the airport, the headmistress tells her it's important for her to continue her dancing. Teen Audrey doesn't hear her as she spies her father and runs to him. Her father comments that he didn't realize how long it had been since he last saw her. Audrey asks why he didn't visit her at school, but he can't seem to answer that. At the gate, Pa Hepburn's papers are examined, and he's told he will need to be questioned (cough, Nazi!, cough), but his daughter can go through. Teen Hepburn cries as the officials detain her father and she is forced to go to her plane.
