Miep and the Most Famous Diary: The Woman Who Rescued Anne Frank's Diary

The story of Anne Frank and her diary is one of the world's most important and well-known, but less is known about the woman who sheltered Anne and her family for years and, ultimately, rescued Anne's diary from Nazi clutches. Miep Gies was a woman who rose to bravery when humanity needed it and risked everything for her neighbors. It is because of Miep we know Anne Frank — and now, this is Miep's story.

This poignant story not only highlights Miep Gies' efforts to save Anne Frank and her family — efforts that could have cost her life — but also her desperate desire to save what she could of Anne's writing. This unflinching book nevertheless captures the power of everyday heroism to preserve the small but precious things in our lives.

"Pincus narrates the terrible facts accurately, not understating them but not allowing the horrors to overwhelm the intensely heroic accomplishment of this kind, courageous woman, employing quotes from Miep’s own writing. Solano’s full- and double-page spreads are done in shades of brown and sepia that perfectly capture the somber mood. Endpapers copy the original cover design of Anne’s diary. A beautifully realized homage." — Kirkus Reviews
