Just saw this on the web.
Miep Gies, the woman who helped hide Anne Frank and her family, has died. She was 100 (actually, her 101st birthday would have been in February).
I taught a Sunday School for Humanistic Jews (Congregation for Humanistic Judaism) a few years ago and always taught my students about Miep’s courage in the face of the Nazis. Obviously, Anne’s story resonated with them, but so did Miep’s.
She was a hero to me. I hope I never have to face what she faced, but if I do, I hope I have half of the courage she did.
