RIP Miep Gies

Miep Gies, the last survivor of the group who worked to hide Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis in the hidden annex and the woman who rescued the girl's diary which went on to become an international phenomenon after their capture, passed away today at 100 years old. An absolute hero and an ambassador for perhaps the most important and poignant piece of writing to emerge from the Holocaust, Mrs. Gies will be missed.
