A question came across LM_Net about Mies Gies, one of the people who helped the Frank family while they were in the annex. There was a question about whether she was still alive or not. So I e-mailed them and got the following response.
“Miep Gies is still alive at the age of 99 years.She does not go public anymore, but it is possible to write her.”
They also included her address, but I didn’t want to post that without permission. If you really want to write her, or just want to learn a lot more about Anne Frank visit the museum’s website:
UPDATE: The website I previously directed you to is no longer the correct address. You can now find information about Anne and the Anne Frank House as they call the museum in her honor at a much more extensive website or even on Twitter.
Almost exactly a year after my original publishing of this post Mies Gies passed away. Learn more about her and her life here:
