On Miep Gies' personal website, however (yes, she has one!), she continues to downplay her role:
I stand at the end of the long, long line of good Dutch people who did what I did or more – much more - during those dark and terrible times years ago, but always like yesterday in the hearts of those of us who bear witness. Never a day goes by that I do not think of what happened then.
We have allowed too many mass murders to take place since the Holocaust. Mrs. Gies is a reminder of the good we must do and to make sure it never happens again.
