She found Anne Frank’s diary and brought the world a message of love and hope. 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. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A poignant account, vibrating with humanity.”

    Elie Wiesel, author of Night

  • “Beautifully written by a person who really cares for other human beings. Her simple style hypnotizes the reader.”

    Isaac Bashevis Singer

  • “A book of immaculate witness.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Gies’ sincerity, humility, and courage emerge from this simple testimony and will not fail to inspire readers.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Barbara Rosenblat speaks with Gies’ 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’ pervading sense of sadness tinged with frustration, anger, and resentment at the horrors inflicted by the Nazi regime…Rosenblat captures equally well Gies’ acceptance and wonder at the way Anne’s story captured the heart of the world. Rosenblat’s performance easily captured ours.”

    AudioFile

  • “Anne Frank’s harrowing account is given a fresh perspective through the eyes of Miep Gies, who, with her husband and others, helped shelter the Frank family during their 25-month period in hiding…Speaking in proud, proper, and warm tones, Rosenblat narrates the memoir as told from Gies’ point of view. She easily affects just the right hint of a Dutch accent; difficult pronunciations of places and people roll off her tongue with ease, accuracy, and consistency. Anne’s youthful voice is full of energy and curiosity, while Otto maintains a modest, reserved, and calm demeanor in the face of tragedy…Highly valued for both its historical content and superb narration.”

    " 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. "

    " Miep Gies tells the story of her harrowing years of the Nazi occupation. I loved this book! If you read Anne's diary, you must read this book to get the adult perspective of what life was like in Amsterdam. Excellent read! "

    " This was an easy book to read, though the horrors perpetrated on the Dutch by the Germans are explicitly told. Told by the woman who helped the Franks hide and helped them in any and every way she could, this book is another look at how the Franks hid, and how the diary came to be published. Definitely a tear-jerker at the end. Now I have to go back and re-read the diary. "

    " I read this before reading Anne Frank: Diary of a young girl. I had mixed feelings about it, but somehow I found this more moving than the actual diary of Anne Frank. This is because you're learning the emotions and experiences of the people who dedicated that part of their life to saving the Frank family. They were the most devoted friends that a family could have. Even though the Frank family ended up being found, Miep and her husband realized that it was not their fault and there was really nothing more they could have done. After the war was over and the imprisoned Jews were freed, Miep and her husband stuck by Otto Frank's side, which was incredible. "
