Anne Frank Trees
Anne Frank often looked out of the attic window at the chestnut tree that grew behind the secret annexe. It was a symbol of hope for the hiders, and continued to stand there until a storm felled it in 2010.
The Anne Frank Tree campaign
In 1998, we launched a campaign to plant trees in Anne’s memory across the UK. The trees are to honour and memorialise the millions of children like Anne who have been killed as a result of persecution, conflict and inhumanity. The campaign continues to be a widespread success with trees in places such as:

- Brighton & Hove
- Batsford Arboretum
- Bournemouth Gardens, Dorset
- Chesterton School
- Covent Garden, Central London
- Finchley, North London
