The tree itself is a cyber Chestnut tree, designed as a replica of the one growing outside the secret Annex that Anne wrote about. but as names are collected, they will be attached to individual leaves. The site also encourages you to contribute writing on Anne Frank inspired themes like Courage, Freedom and Goodness.
While my trip to the Anne Frank house was rather under whelming, nonetheless, I’ve gotta support the humanitarian heart of the Anne Frank Tree mission, basically for those who have been inspired by Anne Frank to in turn inspire others.
The real life tree is sick and dying, but hopefully the virtual one will live on for many long years.
