Otto Frank

In her book ‘Anne Frank Remembered’, Miep Gies writes about Otto Frank in the secret annexe:

‘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.’
