    Miep Gies Jan 11, 2010 weeks shy of her 101st birthday. Gies worked for Otto Frank’s Amsterdam pectin co. & was the main caretaker of the Franks, including Anne, and the four other Jews who hid for 25 months in the business’ back rooms. Those hiding in the Secret Annex managed, with the help of Gies, her husband & four co-workers, to evade capture by the Nazis until Aug. 1944. Dispersed to various concentration camps, only Anne’s father returned alive. And while you're reading this, check out Anne Frank's Diary. :)
