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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Couldn't put it down.  Dec 7, 2009
This book was a great compainion to the Anne Frank Diary. You get the outside view of the Annex. I have always been very interested in Miep Gies and the other helpers views and takes on the situation. This book told me exactly that.
I loved this book !
Wonderful, insightful book  Apr 7, 2009
I can't believe it took me so long to discover this book. What a great complement it is to Anne Frank's diary. Miep Gies details all that went on outside the hiding place, the search for food, the Dutch Resistance movement, the security fears. I wish there had been more photos, but this is a great account nevertheless. Well worth reading. Miep Gies also has her own web site where she answers some of the most common questions she is asked about the Franks.
Touching, everyone should read this memoir  Mar 14, 2009
Most people know Anne Frank as the young girl who hid with her family and friends in the attic behind the bookcase in Amsterdam during World War II and Hitler's anti-jewish regime. Anne's diary is one of the most highly recognisable and tragic tales to come from the Holocaust, and yet I have always personally wondered about those that helped to hide and tried to save the Franks' and Van Daans'. What sort of lives did they lead? What was life like outside the Annexe? Will their story fit like a missing puzzle piece to Anne's vibrant, sad and yet often humorous account? Now, in reprint, we have that missing piece.

Part memoir, part rememberence, we follow Miep Gies as a young girl being sent from her home in Germany as an under-nourished child of WW1 to live in Holland with her adoptive family for 3 months, then 6 months, then for good. We watch as she takes up her fateful position with Otto Frank creating jams, as she watches the start of Hitler's reign and instinctively knows where his policies will lead, and finally as she volunteers to help protect the Frank family in their hour of need. Written in collaboration with Alison Gold, we can see from their vivid descriptions and to-the-point prose exactly what life was like during WW2 in Holland, and just how much harder it was to hide those you loved from certain death.

Knowing the level of interest in her memoir, Anne features prominantly in Miep's story and we get to see from a fresh perspective this vibrant and beautiful girl as she grows from a small child with excess energy to a young woman with excess energy. Exactly like a puzzle piece, we are able to compare and read together both books- flicking from Anne within the Annexe to Miep in the world, and it certainly proves to be an insightful glimpse into a time we know so much about yet do not understand. (By this I mean that you could have Anne's diary open and read both books at once). Miep fills in alot of gaps that due to Anne's age and position we were not able to know before, and continues on the tragic tale from where Anne's diary abruptly stops.

I would just like to say that even though I dont know Miep Gies at all, I am so proud of her actions during this dangerous time. I agree with another reviewers sentiments- as much as we all say without hesitation that we would do the same, exactly how many of us would when push came to shove? How many of us would lay our lives on the line to protect those we love? Her heartbreaking tale just goes to show that with the bad comes the good and that there are people out there who will rise above the dangers and follow their conscience. I want to be a better person because of this memoir, and am so grateful to Miep for breaking her silence and allowing us to share her pain and her memories. I wish Miep every happiness possible and hope she has been able to move on and only remember the good about her friends, rather than the ending.

A must read for all people of all backgrounds and all ages.
Surprisingly disappointing effort  Aug 8, 2008
There is no question that the reader can remain spellbound by the risk and sacrifice which Miep Gies undertook on behalf of the Frank family, and that underlying theme is inspirational, bordering on awe inspiring. Yet I found the overall work to be poorly written and unexpectedly boring.

I shall admit that I assumed that Miep's book would have the richness of detail which I found in the excellent DVD by the same name - one which I would highly recommend. That documentary, which includes ample interviews with Miep herself and various others, truly did show a 'larger picture' of Anne and her family. Most of even Miep's own contributions to the documentary are not contained in this book.

Most of Miep's reflections give a vivid, though hardly unique, picture of the hardships of the war years, focussing on herself, her husband, and several others who were providing or seeking 'hiding places.' There actually was little to 'flesh out' a picture of Anne Frank. Apparently no one had a clue as to much of what Anne was thinking as she composed her diary, and about all one learns of Anne from Miep is that she enjoyed celebrations, wrote a good deal, and had a vivacious nature.

Much of Miep's text deals with such difficulties as trying to obtain food - tragic, but very repetitive. There is hardly any information about those in hiding, and the general impression is that, though Miep was dedicated to her 'boss' Otto Frank and his family, she did not know them well, before or during the time of their hiding. This would seem unusual, since Miep does mention previous social contacts with the Franks, as well as her extended employment in their business - she probably knew much that was not shared. There are rare passages when Miep can capture tension, such as when her overnight stay at the Annex gives her some idea of the fright of those in hiding. But there is no insightful information about any of the Frank family or other inhabitants. We see Mrs Frank as pessimistic and somewhat taciturn - know that the dentist was disliked by Anne but cannot discover why - hear several references to Margot as very pretty. Full stop. Though Miep refers to daily visits and to Anne's speaking with her, the conversations must have been peripheral (nor is any content shared.) Apparently Miep knew nothing of, for example, Anne's infatuation with Peter, so prominent in the diary.

Despite the honourable loyalty Miep and Henk demonstrated, my admiration for this stemmed from knowing the circumstances, not from the book itself, which was largely dull. I suppose I had hoped for an extended picture of Anne and family based on the memories of one who knew them, but the information was often banal.
Great book  Apr 6, 2008
This was a great book and filled in a few of the questions I had always had about Anne Frank. For it to be written by Miep added so much on a personal level that I loved. This book along with the Diary of Anne Frank should be required reading for the human race.
