Miep Gies was a 32 year old secretary in Otto Frank's office when he asked her to help him and his family hide from the Nazis. She immediately said yes. At great risk to her own life, she bought food and other supplies to the Franks on a daily basis for over two years. After the Franks were arrested, she save Anne's diary and later went to Gestapo Headquarters and tried to buy the Frank's freedom. Miep was knighted by Queen Juliana of the Netherlands and later attended the Academy Awards in 2010 where she won an Oscar for the film based on her book Remembering Anne Frank. She was 100 years old.
