Original Plaque ANNE FRANK'S TREE/ Planted on 12 June 1998/ To commemorate Anne Frank/ and all the children killed in/ wars and conflicts in this century/ Planted by/ The Mayor of the City of Derby/ Councillor Abdul Rehman; Current Plaque In memory of Anne Frank (1929-1945) // This tree was planted in memory of Anne Frank, the Jewish writer who died in Bergen-Belsen. // The original "Anne Frank tree" in Amsterdam was a horse chestnut which she could see from the attic of the house where she and her family were in hiding. She wrote in her diary on 23 Rd. February 1944 : 'Nearly every morning, I go to the attic to blow the stuffy air from my lungs. From my favourite spot on the floor, I look up at the blue sky and bare chestnut tree, in whose branches the dew shines, appearing like silver, and at the seagulls as they glide on the wind- As long as this exists, and I may live to see it, this sunshine, the branches, I cannot be unhappy.' // The tree was dedicated on 26 Th. January 2017, at the heart of our City. It is a living reminder of Holocaust Memorial Day, as a symbol of the past and those who are remembered, and of the future and our hopes for a safer, better world.
