Seedlings of the Anne Frank tree planted in different places in Europe


As a living memorial of the evacuation of their neighbors from the 2.distric of Vienna, a neigborhood with formerly many jewish residents, a seedling of the Anne Frank tree has been planted in November 2015. This was organized by the district managment, the 'Gebietsbetreuung', and supported by schools of the area. Many girls and boys attend this event, the local mayor and the head of the district management reminded in their speeches these dark times, in a text by Helga Fassbinder a link was drawn to the fate of refugees of the present time.

A few months earlier, initiated by Peter Velter, children of a couple of schools in Brabant, in the South of the Netherlands, planted a seedling of the great famous Anne Frank tree, too.





This is press report of a planting of a seedling in a town in the North of Germany, in Syke, at the entrance of a school for professional school.
