Rest in Peace, Ms. Gies
Miep Gies, the last surviving member of the group who helped protect Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis, died in the Netherlands at the age of 100, yesterday.
Ms. Gies, thank you for the good you did during your life. You may have said, "We did our duty as human beings: helping people in need," but these were extraordinary achievements nonetheless. Rest in peace.
