Jewish Biography --> Righteous among the Nations
Miep Gies (February 15, 1909 January 11, 2010[3]) was one of the Dutch citizens who hid Anne Frank, her family and eight family friends in an attic annex above Anne's father's place of business from the Nazis during World War II. She was an Austrian by birth but was adopted by a Dutch family and at the time of second world war, lived in the Netherlands. She worked in a company called "Travies and Company" that manufactured goods and products for homemakers. When she came to know that her boss Otto Frank had moved to the Netherlands from Germany with his family because he was a Jew and wanted to escape the Nazis, she became their confidante. She helped the Frank family to the greatest extent. . She discovered and preserved Anne Frank's diary after the Franks were arrested.
