A limited drama following a Dutch woman who sheltered Anne Frank's family from the Nazis.

Miep Gies was a carefree and opinionated young woman at a time when opinions could get you killed ― when Otto Frank asked her to help hide his family from the Nazis during WWII. Without hesitation, Miep agreed, and for the next two years she and her devoted husband, with several other everyday heroes, watched over the Frank, van Pels, and Pfeffer families hiding in the secret annex.

Based on the Inspiring True Story of Miep Gies.

To continue from last post - The first two episodes, at least, are part of the 2+ hours pilot (so they can be skipped if you watched the bundled/long pilot). I don't remember the long version of the pilot having the unescapable commercials, though it did have few(er) commercials. I almost like commercial breaks when I can fast forward. But I've yet to find anything watchable when I can't ff. So far, though, commercials are limited.

I watched the 2 1/2 hour ep1 pilot, although I missed bits of it. There's also a 1 hour ep1 pilot which confuses me. Could it be what I saw already, but condensed?

It's well done and recommended although the story, of course, is depressing. It looks like you could stop watching at any point if you wanted to because there is no mystery. I believe I'll stay watching.

The lead actress, Bel Powley, is brilliant in this and a reason to watch. I hadn't seen her before even though she's been active.

When the diary thing [about a prominent lesbian] came up in another thread, I asked why does someone write a diary. Anne Frank had the time and the story. Her I get. I may watch this show some time permitting.
