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.

Reviews-
  • AudioFile Magazine 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. Rosenblat's performance easily captured ours. R.L.L.

    May 1, 1987
    Gies, now 78, recalls how during WW II she, her husband and some of her coworkers sheltered her boss Otto Frank, his family and several other Jews in a secret annex of their Amsterdam office building. Unfortunately, California freelance writer Gold's lackluster rendition contrasts sharply with the spirited, penetrating journal kept by Anne Frank, which Gies secreted from the Nazis and which later was published as Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. In Gold's disappointing retelling, Gies proves to be an intensely private person and frugal with words, many of whose observations are hindsights ("I knew that . . . Anne's diary had become her life'') or dwell on externals like Anne's blossoming figure. Nevertheless, Gies's sincerity, humility and courage emerge from this simple testimony and will not fail to inspire readers. Photos not seen by PW.

    Starred review from May 15, 2009
    Together with Gold, who's written several books about the Holocaust, Gies here tells the heartwarming and tragic story of how she and her husband risked their lives to hide the Frank family and four other Jews from the Nazis. Originally published in 1987, the book is now available for the first time on audio. Barbara Rosenblat (www.barbararosenblat.com) delivers a flawless reading, her rich and slightly accented voice conveying Gies's compassion for humanity, her selfless devotion, and especially her delight in her relationship with Anne. Highly recommended.
