Miep was actually very instrumental in order to preserve the diaries of Anne after the entire family was arrested in 1944. She was quick to smuggle the entire diaries outside of the building. It could have become a source of the Dutch resistance and a piece of evidence for the helpers.

There was an additional person named Bep Voskujil, who was 23 years of age, and was the youngest in the group of people who helped the Frank family at the time. There are various claims that the creators have not mentioned Bep at all. Some think that Bep and Miep have been merged, but if so, then the series will have historical inaccuracy.
