Famous Speech Friday: 1994 lecture by Miep Gies, Anne Frank's protector
The Eloquent Woman
OCTOBER 24, 2014
The book shared her role in hiding the Frank family from the Nazis, as well as in saving the journals and papers that became The Diary of a Young Girl , as she describes in this gripping passage from her 1994 lecture: People sometimes call me a hero. I''m in Amsterdam today for the autumn conference of the European Speechwriter Network. I''m excited about the conference, and eager to see the Anne Frank house for the first time.
