Miep Gies, one of the brave people that helped conceal and feed Anne Frank and her family during the German occupation in World War 2 has passed away at age 100. Ms. Gies personally collected the notes that would become the most famous diary ever written, hoping to one day return them to young Anne:
Removing the pages, she did not read them immediately, telling herself at the time: "These may belong to a child, but even children have a right to privacy."
Then again Anne Frank had no rights. Simply because of her religion, Anne and millions like had no right to privacy, no right to due process, no right to a speedy trial by her peers: Anne Frank could be arrested, thrown in a secret prison, or 'put up against the wall' and shot. The Nazi's even made it all nice and legal sounding.
If that hits home, it should. It damn well should.
