She found Anne Frank\'s diary and brought the world a message of love and hope. 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. 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.
Co-author Alison Leslie Gold has written several books about the Holocaust. She has enjoyed seeing Anne Frank Remembered translated into 19 languages in addition to winning the Best of the Best Award from the American Library Association in 1994.
