AMSTERDAM, Netherlands – Without Miep Gies, the story of Anne Frank might never have been known.
The former office secretary who helped hide the Jewish teenager from the Nazis for two years gathered up the scattered diary pages after the Frank family was arrested and sent to concentration camps. She locked the papers — unread — in her desk until Frank's father Otto returned, the only family member to survive.
Gies died Monday from a neck injury suffered when she fell last month, the Anne Frank House museum said. She was 100 and had been one of the few people still alive who knew Anne

It's sad that this hasn't been responded to. The lady put her life on the line to save others, doing the right thing when that wasn't pc. Got to give this a bump.

Slowly but constantly all the first hand witnesses to this attempted genocide are passing away. I hope they will never be forgotten.
