In the garden of Anna Frank’s house (the teenage girl whose diary while in isolation in her Amsterdam house during WWII made her famous), there is a chestnut tree. In 2007, there was a lot of discussion about the tree, because the city of Amsterdam wanted to cut it down. However, as Anna Frank herself described the tree in her diary, cutting it down implies the end of an important historical symbol for the city. So much so, that a neighbour auctioned a chestnut from that tree on eBay to help re-grow the “Anna Frank tree”. The price for that chestnut went up to almost 7000 euro!

The Anne Frank House on the Prinsengracht in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is a museum dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist Anne Frank, who hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at the rear of the building. As well as the preservation of the hiding place — known in Dutch as the Achterhuis — and an exhibition on the life and times of Anne Frank, the museum acts as an exhibition space to highlight all forms of persecution and discrimination.

It opened on 3 May 1960 with the aid of public subscription, three years after a foundation was established to protect the property from developers who wanted to demolish the block.
