Sapling from Anne Frank's tree planted in Indy

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A sapling grown from the chestnut tree that was a symbol of hope for Anne Frank as she hid from the Nazis in Amsterdam has been planted at the Children's Museum of Indianapolis.

The Indianapolis Star reports the leafy sapling planted Sunday is one of 11 grown from the tree's seeds that were sent to the United States for planting.

Anne Frank could only see the tree from an attic window in the Amsterdam home where her family hid from the Nazis. But she wrote about it repeatedly during the 25 months she remained indoors until her family was arrested in August 1944.

The diary she kept during that period became world-famous after it was published in 1947, two years after she died in a Nazi concentration camp.
