The story of the little orphaned girl from Switzerland has inspired several generations in the last 135 years. Numerous book and movie adaptations in the style of Johanna Spyri’s novels published over the last few decades provide proof of this. Heidi is much more than a stereotypical and romantic character. With her childlike charm she conveys values such as happiness, the courage to face life, a bond to nature as well as a general love towards others. Still to this day, Heidi serves as an idol and a source of inspiration.
