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!

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 amazing woman who knew to preserve anne's memories

    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 Also Recommend:

    THE LIFE OF MIEP GIES THE STORY OF THE WOMAN WHO HELPED THE FRANK FAMILY.

    THIS BOOK ON THE LIFE OF MIEP GIES WAS REALLY MOVING. IT STARTS OFF WHEN MIEP IS JUST A LITTLE GIRL IN VIENNA. SHE WENT THROUGH A HARSH TIME DURING THE FIRST WORLD WAR. JUST LIKE ONE REVIEWER SAYS EVERY PAGE SOARS WITH HEARTBREAKING BEAUTY.

    Highly Recommended

    If you are a history buff or not this was the most intriguing and captive book I have read in a long time. I re-read Anne Frank and then Margot and then this one. There is also out there abook about James the boy who loved Anne Frank..

    How can we thank this woman?

    Not only for being brave enough to help the Franks, but preserving Anne's words so she could 'be a famous writer.' Miep Gies probably never wanted to be a famous writer like her young friend, but her words eloquently describe the 'other side' of Anne's story. She helps us understand this time in history and the heartbreak, yet in a readable way. I highly, highly recommend this book...even if you have never read Anne's diary.

    The Rememberance!

    To this day I'm learning about the Holocaust and it is very sad to see all those people that died.I'm glad that some of my friends that are Jewish weren't born back then!I really like learning about the Holocaust.

    Courage VS Despair

    Never have I ever read a more couragous story in my life yet I was filled with a deep despair afterwards. The courage of the hidden Jews and their protectors is unique and amazing but the brutalities that ocurred can never be forgotten.

    As True As Anne's Diary

    Absolutely the best! This is the book to read if anyone wants to know Anne Frank (besides reading her actual diary). It is so brave and courageous of Miep Gies to help the 8 people in hiding. She put so much of herself at risk, buying food, seeing to their needs. This book is a must read!
