On 12 June 2019, Anne Frank would have turned 90, had she survived the Holocaust.  The United Nations will honour her legacy by dedicating a sapling donated by the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect.  The donated sapling is descended from the horse chestnut tree that grew outside the attic in which the Frank family hid for two years from the Nazis, before they were betrayed.
