Jennifer Pace-Robinson, Vice President of Experience Development and Family Learning, Children's Museum of Indianapolis Anne Frank's Symbol of Peace and Inspiration Blooms Again
The descendant of the horse chestnut tree that served as a symbol of inspiration and peace for Anne Frank during World War II was planted at the Children's Museum on April 14, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
The Children's Museum sapling is one of just 11 derived from the 170-year-old horse chestnut tree that will be planted at key locations across the United States. The Anne Frank Center USA chose the sapling sites based upon their historic significance and commitment to continuing education about tolerance.
In a contributing partnership, The Anne Frank Center USA and The Children's Museum of Indianapolis are also creating a teaching and discovery website. Launching in the spring, the site will share content from each location, show how locales are using the Sapling Project to advance tolerance, and stimulate public dialogue among educators, elected officials and civic leaders about contemporary issues of intolerance.
