Audrey Hepburn, legendary actress, icon of style and humanitarian, was as a resident of Tolochenaz, a village just a few miles from Morges, from 1963 until her untimely death in 1993. A Swiss resident for 2/3 of her life, she resided in Tolochenaz, where she is buried, for 30 years.
She acted in numerous films in the 50’s and 60’s, including « Roman Holiday » (1953) for which she was awarded an Oscar for Best Actress, «War and Peace» (1956), « Breakfast at Tiffany’s » (1961) and « My Fair Lady » (1964).
From the Town Hall of Morges where she married in 1969, to the ‘Grand’ Rue’ market which she visited regularly to the Dumas grocery store with its back door through which she escaped the paparazzi, Audrey Hepburn continues to be remembered by the town and its inhabitants for her elegance, simplicity and kindness.
