Anne Frank Remembered

Author: Miep Gies

Rating: 5 Stars

Review:

I had not done a review of this book on Goodreads, much like Anne's diary, because I find it hard to do that and not feel like I am reviewing someones life and actions for them. But this is an important book, as important as Anne's diary, because it shows that what Anne felt was really still true - that there were still good people, willing to risk their own lives, because what the Nazis were doing was wrong. Mrs. Gies said time and again after the story came to light that she and her husband were not heroes, but they were doing what was right, because it was right. But they are heroes, just like the thousands of others across Europe who acted in the same manner, helping hide their friends and neighbors, doing whatever they could to help. Highly, highly recommended.
