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." Book jacket.

Miep tells what it was like living in Holland before and during the war. Things changed when Hitler conquered Holland, and things went from bad to worse. Her story is well written and a good accompaniment to Anne's diary.

I get the impression that Miep Gies was reluctant to tell her story, for fear of taking the spotlight away from Anne Frank. But Miep need not have worried; her story enhances Anne's instead of taking away from it.

Miep's life was so amazing. I kept pausing in my reading to tell my family little tidbits from the book. Some of these tidbits include: how Miep narrowly avoided being deported to Austria, how Miep stood up to the Nazi who arrested the occupants of the Annex, and how Miep cared for Otto Frank after the war. She claims she was just an ordinary woman, but I think she was extraordinary.

Miep also tells of her husband's wartime resistance activities, and she weaves their love story into the narrative.

I would recommend this book for almost anyone. Miep's message is one that needs to be spread to as many people as possible.
