    If a person has heard Miep Gies speak, this book is extactly like her speech. She may have a co-author, but her voice comes though loud and clear.

    Like the documentry about Anne Frank, this book does much in dispelling some of the myths that surrond the Frank family and thier assoicates. In many ways, Otto and Anne Frank still dominant the book. In part, this is because Gies had a closer relationship to Mr. Frank, and in part because of the popularity of Anne Frank's diary. Gies, however, brings a different prespective to several of the attic residents. The Van Danns become more just Anne's fighting couple and are shown to be as intelligent and as generous as the Franks. Gies points out that Anne's diary was lucky enough to surive, while Margot's was not. She shows that Edith Frank was willing, encouraged, her husband and children to escape to America, even if it meant living her behind.

    Gies expresses regret over how some of the residents, in particular Dussel, where protrayed in various film versions.

    Additionally, Gies presents a good look at Amsterdam and the Netherlands during the war. From the mention of Rotterdam's destruction at the bombs of the Germans to Radio Orange to the struggle to find food, Gies paints a picture of life without getting bogged down in details. Even today, one can still see the Dutch anger at the Germans as evidenced by the party Rotterdam threw when Amsterdam's Ajax beat a German team for the Champions League crown.

    The reader is also given examples of the fates other Jewish residents, some who managed to go into hiding, some who did not. Gies and her husband, Jan (Henk), were far more heroic than any read of the diary knows.

    There is no hubris in the story, and one has to wonder if Gies wrote because of her desire to set the record straight and to prove to all the slanderers that the diary recorded real life. The epilogue is one of the few places were she really sounds angry about those people.

    Recently, historians have pointed out that stories such Gies' makes it sound as if the Dutch were far more subversive and saved more Jews than they actually did. Gies doesn't claim to speak for her country. In fact, she makes it quite clear that there was a large amount of betrayal going on, especially when food became hard to get. She mentions problems about what to do when someone in hiding dies.

    While she never states the fact that she didn't have a child during the war, one wonders if the childless statue of Gies and her husband made it easier for them to risk helping people. She never says, but the question hangs in the shadows of some passages.

    This isn't to miminalize her bravery or the bravery of the other helpers who did so much because it was the right thing to do. It simply, like the book, makes us consider the wider picture.

    “I am not a hero. I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did or more—much more—during those dark and terrible times years ago, but always like yesterday in the hearts of those of us who bear witness. Never a day goes by that I do not think of what happened then.

    More than twenty thousand Dutch people helped to hide Jews and others in need of hiding during those years. I willingly did what I could to help. My husband did as well. It was not enough.” (from the prologue.)

    This is not a new book, but one of those to which I return. I even like holding it in my hands and just looking at the name of the woman whose journey it reveals: Miep Gies.

    Miep is the woman who, with her husband Jan Gies, helped hide Anne Frank from the Nazis. Like so many young Jewish girls growing up I was more than a little obsessed with stories from the Holocaust; especially The Diary of Anne Frank. At the time she wrote in her diary, she was probably only a bit older than I was at the time I read the book, so, of course, I walked in her shoes. It certainly didn’t seem long enough ago to not think about her as me, and me as her.

    Was there a Jewish child growing up anywhere in the world who didn’t think what if? Some, I imagine, averted their thoughts from the events of WWII and pretended it was all as far away as the Roman Empire. Others, went through life compulsively reading about it, breathing the lives of those who’d lived through it and those who had lost their lives.

    On top of the obvious victims, were the other victims—those who were forced to witness the atrocity, those who participated. After visiting the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC, and I paraphrase here, what my husband and I remembered most deeply, were the audio-taped words of a survivor. In speaking about his experience in a concentration camp, he related a story of being berated by a fellow internee for praying.

    “Why are you thanking God?” he was asked.

    “I am thanking him for not making me him,” the man said, pointing to a guard.

    It is horror without relief to have been a slave, a concentration camp internee, and a victim in Darfur. It is another horror, to have been the victimizer.

    Books like this, they always make me wonder, given the circumstances, on which side would I end up? We read the books, we watch the movies, and we assume we’d have the courage of the righteous, but I believe it bears remembering how brave people like Miep Gies had to be, and to remember all the Miep and Jams out there today. I pray that given the circumstances, we’d follow their path.

    Anne Frank Remembered by Miep Gies & Alison Leslie Gold
    Narrated by: Barbara Rosenblat

    5 stars

    The story of Anne Frank has been told for many decades and is one that resonates with a lot of young people. Anne’s story of survival in the Annex of her father’s business along with her family, another family, and a doctor is famous for being a story of growth and hope. The world outside of the small prison keeping the Franks safe was horrifying and wrought with murder, starvation, and abuse. Miep Gies was one of the people who helped hide the Franks in the Annex and this is her story. We follow Miep as a young girl in Vienna, her love for the Dutch, her journey to become an official Dutch citizen during the Natzi regime, her relationship with the Franks (before, during, and after the war), her plight to feed the Franks and retain enough food for them as well as her and her husband, and the fear that lurked in her heart for the Franks and countless others she helped hide or knew were in hiding. I'm going to keep this review short because it's a nonfiction narrative I fidn those incredibly hard to review. This audiobook is fantastic. Rosenblat does a stellar job of capturing the emotions of Miep and those around her. It is important to note that this story will probably break your heart. Towards the end, I found myself crying a lot. My heart completely breaks for these people and the plights that were dealing with in the Annex and after in the camps. This story is just as important as Anne’s because we are seeing the work that went into hiding these people from the Nazi Regime and the horrors of concentration and death camps. This novel is filled with sorrow and I will admit it made me quite depressed, but it also filled me with hope for humanity. Miep Gies never once saw herself as a hero, she saw herself as someone trying to save her dear friends’ lives and that to me makes her one of the most heroic people in history. Her deep love for the Franks shined through this story and I was moved to laughter and to tears. This is a novel that I think everyone should read alongside The Diary of a Young Girl. It is important not only to history, but in inspiring people to put others before themselves.

    This is an amazing book by Miep Gies. It was Miep and her husband who helped to hide the Frank family during WWII, and who provided food and comfort to them. It was heartbreaking and powerful. I admire the author and her husband – what brave heroes they were!


  5. says:

    Wow! This story will teach you everything you need to know about true friendship, loyalty, and fortitude. It's better than any novel of World War II.

    This is one of those books that both breaks your heart and uplifts you at the same time. Miep Gies does not see herself and her husband as "heroes" but they most certainly are. They are the couple who helped hide Otto Franks' family in Holland during World War 2. His daughter Anne did not survive the Nazi concentration camp but her diary, her thoughts, her words, and her heart will live forever. It was through the actions of Miep Gies who first hid the Franks and then rescued and saved Anne's diary and later gave it to her father Otto that we know Anne's deepest, more heartfelt thoughts.
    This book documents the story of Anne from just before she went into hiding until her death and even beyond when Otto Frank returned to live with Miep and her husband and received the now-famous diary. I could feel my heart pounding with fear as Miep took me back to those dangerous times and she herself was almost arrested and possibly executed for harboring Jews.
    Please read this book. It is something that will remind you that some people on this planet are not selfish. There are compassionate people who will risk their lives for others and to do the right thing. They are not about profit and selfishness but about love for others and truly live out their love. Miep Gies is one of those people.

    Simply fascinating, as I knew it would be.
    Tears in my eyes as I read that Peter van Daan survived "The Auschwitz Death March"
    (as did Elie Wiesel who documented that nightmare experience in the book "Night"),
    only to die in Mauthausen on the same day that the camp was liberated by the Americans.

    What a moving and inspirational book. A definite must read for all.

    I am not a hero. I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did or more—much more—during those dark and terrible times years ago, but always like yesterday in the hearts of those of us who bear witness. Never a day goes by that I do not think of what happened then. . . . I willingly did what I could to help. My husband did as well. It was not enough.There is nothing special about me. . . . I was only willing to do what was asked of me and what seemed necessary at the time. . . . My story is a story of very ordinary people during extraordinarily terrible times. Times the like of which I hope with all my heart will never, never come again. It is for all of us ordinary people all over the world to see to it that they do not. (11-12)
    This autobiography by Miep Gies is quietly amazing. It is an excellent companion to Anne Frank's diary. The narrative in Gies's memoir is not directly linked to particular days Anne wrote about, but readers familiar with the diary will see some clear connections.

    One of the things that's special about Gies's book is how it fills out the picture of what was happening when the Franks and others were in hiding. Reading only Anne's diary, one can get the feeling that life outside of the Annex was going on as normal. But Gies shows the increasing pressure that everyone in Amsterdam was under in those years. The details from Gies's story are overwhelming, and the last 50 pages of her book are hard to put down.

    Of course, the biggest gap that Gies fills is the one that Anne's diary couldn't: What happened on that day? It's gripping, terrifying, and heartbreaking.

    For me, the most impressive aspect of this story is what Gies summarizes in the quote above, from the preface to the book: that she was an ordinary person making the best choices she could in dark times. I love seeing Gies's character as she steadily pushes forward, speaking and taking action based on compassion. The same is true of her husband, Henk, who must also have been an incredible person. I was grateful for this reminder, through Miep's story, that who we become is based on those little choices we make every day. May I become a compassionate, wise person through my daily choices.

    Every year I try and immerse myself into a true life war story. This year I chose this one I actually was listening to Anne franks diary on the BBC, and was so moved by the story again that I went hunting for more, and found this remarkable story. It’s always good to see it from other people’s perspective. The pain and heartache they felt when Anne didn’t return, only her father. Brilliantly told!
