Bill would honor Miep Gies (USA)

A bill honoring the life of the woman who hid Anne Frank's family and salvaged her diary is winding its way through the U.S. House of Representatives.
The non-binding resolution seeking to honor the life of Miep Gies is sponsored by Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy (D-Ohio) and has 60 co-sponsors.

Gies helped to hide the Frank family from 1942 until they were turned in by an unknown informant in August 1944. Gies discovered the diary pages of Anne Frank and saved them in her desk for Anne's return. When Anne's death in Bergen-Belsen was confirmed, Gies turned the documents over to Anne's father, Otto.
The bill commends Gies, who died on Jan. 11, just shy of her 101st birthday, “for her bravery during Nazi occupation of the Netherlands and her dedication to preserving the memory of Anne Frank and the Holocaust.”
