From her childhood as a World War I refugee to her friendship with Anne Frank, Miep Gies has emerged today as the person who was responsible for the discovery and the eventual publication of this young girl’s diary. This diary would one day be known and read all over the world, a true inside view of the Holocaust through a young victim’s eyes. The story of Miep Gies is one of bravery, selflessness and real humility. This presentation will feature Ms. Gies, a remarkable woman of the Holocaust, and discuss her place in its history.
