The event

As the Allies were trying their best to liberate Europe, thousands of ordinary citizens were taking great risks to resist the Nazi occupation of their homelands.

In Holland, one such hero was a British girl called Audrey Hepburn, who would go on to become one of the most famous film stars ever.

Tom Palmer, author of several prize-winning children’s books set in the First and Second World Wars, will talk about his new book, Resist, and reveal the awe-inspiring story of Audrey’s childhood under Nazi occupation.

The speaker

Award-winning author Tom Palmer was a reluctant reader as a child and credits articles about football with getting him into reading. He went on to become a bookseller and then worked in reader development.

He is well known for his hugely successful football fiction for Puffin and is one of Barrington Stoke’s top-selling authors, writing about both sport and history with great appeal.
