Judy Winnick portrays “Miep Gies: A Beacon of Hope for Anne Frank.” Miep Gies (1909-2010) is one of the unsung heroes of the Holocaust. This petite, humble, Catholic woman helped hide Anne Frank and her family in the Netherlands during WWII. Miep provided them with food and other basic necessities. She linked them to the outside world. Her emotional support gave them a beacon of hope. Without the protection Miep and her husband gave, Anne might not have survived to write the diary. Ms. Winnick is on the Colorado Humanities/Chautauqua Speakers Bureau and has performed internationally. During her teaching career she received one of Colorado's Distinguished Teacher Awards.
Tickets are available at the Museum for a suggested donation of $3.00. Seating is limited and tickets are required. For more information, call the Museum at 303-795-3950. This performance is for ages 12 and over.
