On the 23rd August 2010 the Anne Frank Tree in Amsterdam fell down. While living in the secret annex this chestnut tree, which Anne Frank could see from her place in hiding, became a symbol of hope to the young girl. The tree has continued to be a symbol of hope and of resistance against the prejudice and hatred that led to Anne Frank’s death. A number of Anne Frank saplings have been planted to continue the legacy of hope, which this tree symbolised.
The Daily Mirror is running a competition, in partnership with the Anne Frank Trust, for a school or educational establishment to win one of these saplings. For more information and details on how to enter please follow the link to our website – http://www.annefrank.org.uk/
