While most are familiar with Anne Frank's diary, fewer remember the courage of the people who helped her family. Otto Frank's employee, Miep Gies, coordinated the hiding place and worked through her own exhaustion and terror to keep the family safe and supplied with food and company. Barbara Rosenblat speaks with Gies's own voice, bringing an impeccable Dutch flavor to her words and flawlessly pronouncing the many proper nouns of that challenging language. She effortlessly conveys Gies's pervading sense of sadness tinged with frustration, anger, and resentment at the horrors inflicted by the Nazi regime. In the author's afterword, Rosenblat captures equally well Gies's acceptance and wonder at the way Anne's story captured the heart of the world.… (more)

    edjane: While you can read Anne Frank Remembered without ever reading the Diary of Anne Frank, I believe these two books complement each other.

Heartbreaking and uplifting. This tells the story of of Miep, how she came to know the Franks, how she helped the Franks and the war in general. It provides a personal look at the war, the effects of the war, and the lives of people tying to help in anyway they could. ( )

I've always loved "Diary of a Young Girl" and I have been meaning to read this for ages, but I had no idea how great it truely was. From Anne's diary I assumed Miep was shy, perhaps because her name sounded so much like "meek." Meip was anything but shy. She and her husband did everything that they possibly could, not just for the Frank family but for all the persecuted peoples of the time, from housing a young man who refused to sign a German aligence agreement to attend college to her husband who was part of an underground resistance movement. She refuses to call herself a hero but someone who doesn't think of themselves as times of trials but of assisting others, is the true definition ofa hero. The story of the amazing fighter should be recognized as not just a footnote in the Anne Frank story. It was great to see "the annex" from the outside. ( )

author — Miep Gies — woman who helped hide Frank Family
Before 1943 + 1951 — what she did / before / during — after — very courageous + moving — did Fight Back —

For the millions moved by Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, here at last is Miep Geis's own astonishing story. For more than two years, Miep Gies and her husband helped hide the Franks from the Nazis. Like thousands of unsung heroes of the Holocaust, they risked their lives each day to bring food, news, and emotional support to the victims.

She found the diary and brought the world a message of love and hope.

It seems as if we are never far from Miep's thoughts....Yours, Anne

Miep's story really fleshes out the events before, during, and after what is covered in Anne Frank's diary. ( )
