28. Several People Helped Hide The Frank Family
When Otto Frank could not get visas for his family to head to the United States of Cuba in the early 1940s, he talked to some of his most trusted friends and employees. Together, Otto, Miep Geis, Victor Kugler, Johannes Kleiman, and Elizabeth Voskuijl came up with a plan to hide the Frank family.
The Franks would take refuge in the annex of Otto’s business. It was a secret spot, the only doorway closed by a bookcase, so people wouldn’t think there was another floor. The employees also spread rumors that the family ran off to Switzerland.
