Miep Gies, the last surviving member of the group who helped protect Anne Frank and her family from the Nazis, has died in the Netherlands aged 100.
She and other employees of Anne Frank's father Otto supplied food to the family as they hid in a secret annex above the business premises in Amsterdam.
Anne's diary of their life in hiding, which ended in betrayal, is one of the most famous records of the Holocaust.
It was rescued by Mrs Gies, who kept it safe until after the war.
Miep Gies died in a nursing home after suffering a fall just before Christmas.
Speaking last year as she celebrated her 100th birthday, Mrs Gies played down her role, saying others had done far more to protect Jews in the Netherlands.
She and her fellow employees kept Anne and the seven others supplied for two years, from 1942 to 1944.

God bless you.
And may God damn the man or woman who betrayed the Franks.
God Bless you Miep-you were and will always be a hero!
She rocketed straight to heaven just like Irena Sendler.
Required reading in Jr. High to this day.
By saving this diary, this woman has kept the horrors of the holocaust for posterity - so they’ll never forget.
Anyway, may God rest your soul, Mrs. Gies.
God Bless you and may you rest in piece.
You were a hero and a richeous person.
Our world will be poorer by the loss.
Where’s her Nobel Prize ?
She’s one that should have won the Nobel Peace Prize, in my opinion.
On second that, she and her family are far too good for such an award that has become such a joke.
She doesn't deserve one.
It's not like she produced a documentary or had intentions of doing stuff.
A TRUE HERO.. Not like this horses ass in the White house.
Wonder if Obama will mention it ..Naw she’s white and it’s old history..Not part of the new education anyway...
Nice to see that the good don’t always die young.
Wow. Quite a life, saw much sadness. RIP.
Those are only awarded to Jew haters, not Jew helpers.
Miep Gies, may Hashem make your journey one of many, many Blessings, love, and peace. Amen.
