Fascinating life story of woman who hid Anne Frank and her family during WWII

Written by the woman who helped hide Anne Frank, her family, and another family, this might be one of the most remarkable books I think I've ever read. I wouldn't say it's particularly well-written (it's not really supposed to be), it just tells the story from her perspective and it's pretty astounding.  When you think that this modest, self-effacing (but oh-so-gutsy) woman not only hid all these people for two years, bringing them food that even people on the "outside" had a hard time finding, but that, after they were all captured, she went to Nazi headquarters and tried to get them out, twice, you can't help but be in awe.

What did you think of this review?

That is quite a remarkable story of a very brave woman! I thought you might also be interested in Judgment of Nuremburg, Amen, and Schindler's List, these are all motion pictures related to the subject.

We all learned about the holocaust and WWII in school but not from this perspective.  Anne Frank is an amazing writer and her account of her life during these terrible times is just amazing.  Who would have known that such a young child would have such insight to what was actually going on.  Anne Franks diaries are just amazing, but this book was just as thought provoking, thank you to the people that helped hide our fellow people from the Nazis.  Horrible times, but …
