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.


  1. Without extraordinary people like her we would certainly be a much different world. Yes, thank you Ms. Gies for being one of the bravest women the world has known. God speed.

  2. Yes, rest in peace. What a remarkable human being.
