Miep Gies, 1909-2010

“I am not a hero. I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did and more — much more — during those dark and terrible times years ago, but always like yesterday in the heart of those of us who bear witness.”
-Miep Gies, who helped to hide the Frank family and saved Anne Frank’s diary after they were taken by the Gestapo, died yesterday at the age of 100.
