Miep Gies - After Vienna by Livadialilacs Miep Gies - After Vienna by Livadialilacs
Miep Gies (far right) with her foster family in Holland after she was sent from Vienna, Austria in 1920.

Gies is best known for hiding Anne Frank, her family, and friends from the Nazis from 1942 to 1944.





"Although I was eleven, I looked much younger. My long, fine dark blond hair was held back with a large piece of cotton cloth tied into a big puffed bow. A card was hung around my neck. On it was printed a strange name, the name of people I had never met. The train was filled with many children like me, all with cards around their necks."



Originally (light) SEPIA picture coloured by me.
