Book Club: Anne Frank Remembered

Wednesday, December 18, 2019 20 Kislev 5780

10:30 AM - 12:30 PM

The CNS Book Club has chosen Anne Frank Remembered by Miep Gies as its next read. From Amazon: For the millions moved by Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl, here at last is Miep Geis's own astonishing story. For more than two years, Miep Gies and her husband helped hide the Franks from the Nazis. Like thousands of unsung heroes of the Holocaust, they risked their lives each day to bring food, news, and emotional support to the victims. She found the diary and brought the world a message of love and hope. "It seems as if we are never far from Miep's thoughts....Yours, Anne"... From her own remarkable childhood as a World War I refugee to the moment she places a small, red-orange, checkered diary -- Anne's legacy -- in Otto Frank's hands, Miep Gies remembers her days with simple honesty and shattering clarity. Each page rings with courage and heartbreaking beauty. The Book Club meeting will be December 18th at 10:30 AM. If you are interested in getting involved with Book Club but are unable to meet during the work day, please let us know!
