I really enjoyed reading this book therefore my reasoning on the way I rated the book. Hundreds and Thousands of families were being hunted down. This could make you feel a number of different emotions;helpless, scared, sad, frustrated, angry, or all of the above. Imagine yourself sitting at home and hearing the ring of a telaphone. Rushing excitedly to pick it smiling from ear to ear because you've been having a great day. Coming to find out that someone being the Nazis are hunting down your family. Pretty depressing! Listening to the news makes you want to go looking for your family to be sure they are safe for now. Looking turns into searching. Searching turns into wondering. Wondering will make you just that much more nervous. Especially coming to find that at the place where they would be sent to will make you work, and work, and work. With a saying that "Work will set you free." Want to know more? Read this book; Anne Frank remembered.....

This Book was Great! It made me relize how lucky I am to live in a world that we don't have to worry about our religion or race.When Anne Frank was growing up her family had to worry about being Captured by the Nazis, because they were German, they did not get treated fairly. Anne Frank was a courages young girl!

If i could have met mrs. Gies before she died, i would have hugged and told her thank you for saving anne's memories. Reading this book has made me relize that she and everyone else involved with hiding the franks were in consant danger from being discovered by the nazi in the situation. If we learned anything about ww2, from annes story of survival and mieps bravery to make sure that it would never happened again.

I just know Anne Frank by her name but because of this book, I did not only know her by name but also her experiences. Miep really did a great job helping the Frank family and because of that she's been blessed. This book is a must-read because the story comes straight from the Frank family's friend Miep. It is more credible than of other's works. Read it and you'll surely love it.

I can't think of anyone who has not heard of Anne Frank or her diary that depicts the tragic story of the little girl who did not survive the holocaust. This is not another Anne Frank's Diary story, this is a memoir of a woman who met Anne Frank and her family during the horrors of Hitler's reign in Germany. This is the same woman who actually rescued the pages of the diary before it was trampled by the Germans when they were taken from their hiding place.The woman who is nicknamed Miep briefly touches on her childhood of being adopted by a Dutch family out of her Austrian home due to malnourishment, though not a direct fault of her biological family. Miep writes of her growing up in the Dutch school and then when she later works in an office for Otto Frank. Otto Frank is the father of Margot and Anne Frank, and in 1940 the girls were 14 and 10 years old when Miep had already socialized with them for a few years. At this point, Hitler was Fuhrer of Germany for 6 years and his Nazi ways were beginning to strike more serious fears with onlookers. Miep mentions when England and France had declared war on Germany; while not deeply affected politically yet by these events, Miep explains how she had not hated another person as much as she had begun to hate Hitler then.Miep details her personal life in this memoir, from her social life to advancing career in the growing office under Otto Frank and she writes in a casual tone of how she had reacted to the things going on around her. She realizes that the trouble in Germany has hit closer to home when her Austrian passport gets changed to a German passport complete with a Swastika stamp. Suddenly events turn for the worse and the raids on the Jewish people who had once found solace in the Netherlands were being pulled out of their homes and the streets, and taken to Hitler's camps. For years the war raged on, with the Jewish sympathisers being persecuted and tortured for information on the resistance. I was astonished and horrified as the story went on as to the treatment of all of the Dutch civilians.For several years Miep helped to hide the Frank family in the upper floors of the office building of the company that Miep had worked at for Otto Frank. She then became a source of food, friendship, news and entertainment as two families and an eighth man were hidden in the cramped quarters. The scrounging for food became a daily struggle for Miep to procure for herself and those she helped to hide, but she did it without complaining. The details of the war via the information waves were slow to come and sometimes inaccurate but still there was little hope. Finally they hear of the Allies, that the British were coming, that America had joined the war and there was at last a glimmer of hope that perhaps Hitler would be stopped. But it did not impact the horrific way of living that the people had to survive, and my heart broke for them as Miep details simply the hardships she and her friends endured.Otto Frank seems like a father figure to Miep and her husband, who was very calm, patient and exact with all things that occurred around him. I could feel the admiration Miep held for Otto. But Anne, how she affected Miep with her big saucer like round eyes, and how she probably haunted Miep ever time she closed her own eyes. The bond the two had shared was palpable and heartbreaking; despite the age differences, Anne and Miep were close and had respect for each other, their choices of friends were limited due to their situation. Miep speaks of the little characteristics of Anne that continue to make her a real person to us today, and modestly yet powerfully she tells this story of how Miep survived the war, but others did not.I learned about the ordeals the Dutch endured during the German Occupation, and I enjoyed looking at the pictures that were included of Miep, her friends and family, and Anne and the Frank family. I devoured this book even when my heart was breaking for Anne's family and y

I liked this book. At first, when my mom bought it for me, I was like, "I already read about Anne Frank. Everyone knows Anne Frank." But when I started reading, I learned things about Anne that I never knew about. Usually, the Anne Frank I read about is in her perspective, but this time it is in a friend's perspective, Miep Gies. This story was not only about Anne Frank's legacy, but the woman who made it live on, Miep. This book is recommended to people who think they know the full story.
