Miep Gies, Anne Frank Helper, Passes-Away

The world learned this week that the 100-year-old Miep Gies died Monday after falling late last year.

Far from a household name here in the states, Gies is remembered for hiding Anne Frank and others in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.

The story of the Secret Annex reminds us that heroes can come in all shapes and sizes, and often the bravest do their good works far away from the spotlight.
