The Righteous Gentile

Miep Gies, who helped hide Anne Frank and her family, passed away this past Monday at age 100. An employee of Otto Frank, she saved the famous diary and returned it to Anne's father, who had it published. Mrs. Gies was awarded the title Righteous Gentile by the Holocaust Museum Yad Vashem.

This courageous woman can truly rest in peace.
