Hiding Anne Frank
The Miep Gies Story
A Solo show
Written and Performed by Prudence Wright Holmes
Directed by Danielle Winston
Miep Gies was a 32 year old secretary in Otto Frank’s office when he asked her to 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 on a daily basis 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 Franks’ 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.
