(near the Earl of Sandwich food vendor on the “Mayor’s Walk”)
The Anne Frank Sapling Project came to life in 2009, when The Anne Frank Center USA awarded Boston and ten other sites a sapling derived from the nearly 200 year-old horse chestnut tree that towered behind the Secret Annex, where Anne Frank and her family hid from 1942 -44.
“From my favorite spot on the floor I look up at the blue sky and the bare chestnut tree, on whose branches little raindrops shine, appearing like silver, and at the sea gulls and other birds as they glide on the wind…I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.” Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, February 23, 1944
