Hiding Anne Frank The Miep Gies Story

On Wednesday, July 8, 2020, the Wayne Public Library’s Virtual Lunchbox Learning Program will feature a solo show written and performed by the well-known, successful NYC actress Prudence Wright Holmes entitled Hiding Anne Frank The Miep Gies Story.

Miep Gies was a 32-year-old secretary in Otto Frank’s office when he asked her to help him and his family hide from the Nazis. She immediately said yes. At great risk to her own life, she brought food and other supplies to the Franks daily for over two years. After the Franks were arrested, she saved Anne’s diary and later went to Gestapo Headquarters to try to buy the Frank’s freedom.

Miep was knighted by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and later attended the Academy Awards in 2010 where she won an Oscar for the film based on her book, Remembering Anne Frank. She was 100 years old.
