Description
Anne Frank’s diary is a gift to the world because of Miep Geis. One of the protectors of the Frank family, Miep recovered the diary after the family was discovered by Nazis, and then returned it to Otto Frank after World War II. Displaced from her own home as a child during World War I, Miep had great empathy for Anne, and she found ways—like talking about Hollywood gossip and fashion trends—to engage her. The story of their relationship—and the impending danger to the family in hiding—unfolds in this unique perspective of Anne Frank’s widely known story.

"The book focuses in particular on Miep Gies, the gentile woman who helped them and then found the diary, and some of the details about her childhood are startling." — Kirkus Reviews
"A historically accurate but relatively gentle introduction to the Holocaust for elementary-age readers." — Miriam Aronin, Booklist
