Usually Ships in 1-5 Days


For the millions moved by Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, here at last is Miep Geis’s own astonishing story.

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.

She found the diary and brought the world a message of love and hope.

It seems as if we are never far from Miep’s thoughts...Yours, Anne.

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.

About the Author

Hermine Santruschitz Gies, better known as Miep Gies, helped hide Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis, and saved her diaries. 

Alison Leslie Gold’s wide-ranging body of fictional and nonfictional work spans the Holocaust and World War II, alcoholism and other forms of addiction, mental illness, the art of being a painter’s muse, and loss and love. Miep and Jan Gies, icons of goodness who sheltered Anne Frank, were never willing to have their entire story written until they met Alison. Gold has received the Best of the Best Award given by the American Library Association, the Anti-Defamation League’s Merit of Educational Distinction Award and a Christopher Award for affirming the highest values of the human spirit, among other awards and prizes. Her books have been adapted for stage and screen and have been translated into twenty-three languages. Her blog and more information about her work are available at
