A few days ago, the world lost a hero. Miep Gies died. Her obituary from the New York Times is here.
After the Bible, The Diary of Anne Frank is the most published book in the world (no you shouldn’t quote me on this). Miep Gies is the person in the diary who reminds all of humanity of the power of one person to save the world. When we tell of the horrors of the holocaust, all to often the tales of the Righteous Gentiles are not part of the narrative.
When you first heard of Miep Gies, what were your impressions?
May the memory of the righteous always be for a blessing…
