A SMALL LIGHT, 2023, National Geographic, USA.

A SMALL LIGHT follows Miep Gies, a young secretary who hid Otto Frank and his family from the Nazis during WWII. For nearly two years, Miep and her husband Jan protected the Franks, avoided arrest and fought back. While you may know the story of Anne Frank and her life in the Annex, this is what happened on the other side of the bookcase.
