Woman Who Protected Anne Frank from Nazis Dies

“Miep Gies, the last survivor among Anne Frank’s protectors and the woman who preserved the diary that endures as a testament to the human spirit in the face of unfathomable evil, died Monday night, the Anne Frank Museum in Amsterdam said. She was 100.” (New York Times, Tuesday)

She had the courage to defy authority.
