During the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam, Otto Frank decides to hide his family, who are Jewish, after his daughter Margot is called to appear for transport to a Nazi labour camp. Miep Gies, Otto Frank's office assistant hides them in the attic above the office. The film tells the true story of Gies' struggle to keep the family hidden and safe, as the Nazis turn Amsterdam upside-down. Based upon Gies' memoirs and Anne Frank's famous diary. Written by

Miep Gies, played by Mary Steenburgen, died on January 11, 2010 at the age of 100, the last of the friends of the Frank family who helped hide them, provided them with food and news and who found Anne Frank's diary. See more »
The best news is what Miep has told us, and much closer to home now, that the roundups have stopped.
Oh, it's been weeks and weeks since the last one.
Maybe they're only making room in the death camps for more.

I saw this movie years ago, and remember that it was wonderful. I just wish that it was available in VHS. I also have the book and it is very informative. It filled in a lot of blanks for me. After I read the diary, I wondered how it all came about, how
Anne and her family ended up in hiding. With Meip's book you get a feel for what was going on out side.
