Miep Gies Interview - The Raid and Anne Frank's Capture

In this interview, Otto Frank's employee and friend, Miep Gies, discusses the day that the Secret Annex was raided and Anne Frank, her family, and several others were arrested. She recounts how Austrian police officer Karl Silberbauer, a member of the SS, berated her before ultimately deciding not to place her under arrest. Toward the end of this Miep Gies interview, she talks about how she went to the Secret Annex a short time later and found Anne Frank's diary, which had fallen out of Otto Frank's briefcase when Silberbauer emptied its contents onto the floor during the raid.
