When Anne Frank was hiding from the Nazis and writing in her diary, one of the only things she could see from the outside world was a chestnut tree she could see from the attic. She wrote that she looked at it to keep her spirits up.
--Over the next 60 years, the tree suffered from a moth infestation and a tree fungus, and it finally got blown down by a storm in August of 2010.
--But before it died, the Anne Frank Center was able to collect seeds from the tree, and grow saplings from them. And starting next month, they're going to plant them in 11 different places around the U.S., to keep Anne's legacy alive and promote tolerance.
--The Children's Museum of Indianapolis will plant the first one, and other locations include a park in New York commemorating victims of 9-11, a school in Arkansas that was integrated by the Little Rock Nine, and Holocaust museums in Michigan and Washington.
