Anne Frank's Tree Planted on 12 June 1998 To commemorate Anne Frank and all the children killed in wars and conflict in this century "It's utterly impossible for me to build my life on a foundation of chaos, suffering and death.

In the meantime, I must hold on to my ideals. Perhaps the day will come when I'll be able to realise them". Anne Frank's Diary 15 July 1944
