Jan Gies (1905)

When the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands forced Otto Frank to resign from his own company because he was a Jew, his friend Jan Gies nominally took over. Soon after, the Franks and several friends went into hiding in a secret annex on the company's premises. For the next two years, Jan and his wife, Miep, sustained eight people in hiding, including Otto's daughter Anne, bringing them food and supplies until they were betrayed to the Nazis. How were the Nazis responsible for the Gies' marriage? More...

Jan Gies was Miep’s husband. Although he was not employed at Otto Frank's company, he was involved as a member of the Supervisory Board and was one of the helpers of the people in hiding. He could often be found in the Secret Annex and provided books and distribution coupons.
