Once again , living history becomes past

I just read where one of the people who hid Anne Frank and her family passed away at 100. Miep Gies worked in Otto Franks office and agreed to hide and help the family for 25 months from 1942 to 1944. It was Mrs. Gies who found Anne Frank's diary in the aftermath just after the raid. From the stories I've read, she decided not to read the diary and kept it in full anticipation that she'd be able able to return it to the young diarist.
Anne Frank and her sister Margot died of typhus two weeks before her camp was liberated in 1945.
That being said, I remember coming across the only known movie film of Anne Frank showing a curious twelve year girl looking out a window at a wedding celebration.

Always remember, this young girl died because of a government that had concentrated power, exactly what the Constitution was meant to stop.
