Anne Frank was cheered by the monumental chestnut tree while she was hiding from the Nazis. Frank's recollection of the tree can be found in the Feb. 23, 1944 entry in 'The Diary of Anne Frank.'
The various pieces of Anne Frank's diary are finally being exhibited together in the Amsterdam building where she wrote them.
Miep Gies, the office secretary who defied Nazi occupiers to hide Anne Frank and her family for two years, and who saved the teenager’s diary, died Tuesday. After the Anne Frank's diary was published, Gies tirelessly promoted tolerance.
