"It was cool to have a chance to listen to a real person speak about what he went through during the Holocaust. He was the most credible source that we could have. I learned a lot more through his pictures and stories." ~ Boys Latin Charter School student
Anne Frank's tree, now dying, is taking root around the world
In 2005, the Anne Frank House began to collect seeds from the horse chestnut tree outside Anne Frank's hiding place because fungus is killing the tree. Now, the seeds are being distributed to sites around the world. 11 sites in the United States include Washington D.C., various museums, and a small high school in Upstate New York that changed U.S. history.
