Anne Frank Remembered

By Miep Gies, Alison Leslie Gold

Publisher: Simon & Schuster Adult Publishing Group, April 1988
ISBN: 0671662341
MY HERO recommends this book to young adult readers.
For the millions moved by Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, here at last is Miep'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. From her own remarkable childhood as a World War I refugee to the moment she places a small, red-orange, checkered diary - Anne's legacy - in Otto Frank's hands, Miep Gies remembers her days with simple honesty and shattering clarity. Each page rings with courage and heartbreaking beauty. The Academy Award-winning documentary Anne Frank Remembered continues to spread Anne's message of hope. Of Miep Gies's role in this inspiring story, The New York Times said, "Mrs. Gies...shines through as a woman of unfailing courage and decency."

I have read her diary and have felt very sad for her. She has inspired me. When I read the epilogue it made me cry and feel terrible. I kept thinking, "I'm alive and she's dead!" and it made me feel extremely sad even though there are so much years between us. I wish I could meet her and talk to her. She was such an amazing person and still is no matter how long ago she died. So brave, so amazing, the best! i love you Anne Frank. May you rest in peace and happiness and I hope Heaven is a lot better than Hollywood!!

Dear Miep,
It was amazing what you did.  You risked your life for Anne and the other people in the "Secret Annex".  I just finished reading Anne Frank and she really looked up to you.  Thank you for helping those Jews because if you didn't there probably wouldn't be an Anne Frank.  Thank you so much.
