Anne Frank Tree Replanting

November 15, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

We will be replanting our Anne Frank Tree. The tree was originally planted in Birmingham’s Kelly Ingram Park on April 11, 2010. The tree is dedicated to the “victims of intolerance and discrimination,” which not only includes Anne Frank but also, Denise McNair, Addie Mae Collins, Carole Robertson, and Cynthia Wesley, the four little girls who were killed in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing. The plaque in front of the tree is inscribed with a quote from “Anne Frank’s Diary”: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” The current tree has died, but a dedicated committee has found an American Birch tree, that may live up to 300 years and is more suitable in Alabama’s climate.

Weather permitting, together socially distanced, and via live stream, the BHEC will plant the new Anne Frank tree to commemorate victims of intolerance and discrimination.

The Anne Frank Tree Story

A horse chestnut tree was a symbol of hope for Anne Frank. The one outside her Amsterdam window was one of her only connections to nature as she and her family hid for two years from the Nazis. Anne mentioned the tree in her diary, which was later turned into the best-selling book, “The Diary of Anne Frank.”
