Otto Frank

In her book Anne Frank Remembered, Miep Gies writes about Otto Frank in the Secret Annex:

"Mr. Frank was the calmest, the children’s teacher, the most level-headed, the one who kept everyone in balance. He was the leader, the boss. If a decision had to be taken, all eyes turned to Mr. Frank."
