I have read everything on Anne Frank that I could get my hands on. She has been a hero of mine for a very long time. Another hero has been Miep Gies. When I finally had a chance to read her version of the German occupation and her time caring for the Franks, I jumped on it.
Throughout the story, I learned about Miep and Jan (her husband), which I never knew and which further made me realize what amazing people they were. Miep gets into what happened on the day the Frank family was taken into custody and what happened in the office.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end and believe it is essential reading for those who are interested in World War II from the perspective of those who were on the inside looking out.
