Fireworks are beautiful to look at, but they can be scary for our pets. The bangs and booms are hard on their sensitive hearing, and even the calmest pet can get upset by the unfamiliar loud noises.

The Anne Frank tree’s dedication to Seattle: The Holocaust Center for Humanity | Hoff

  • Jun 24, 2016 at 6:30AM

On May 1, a sapling was dedicated to the city of Seattle. This sapling, however, is more than just a growing tree, it's a reminder of a devastating piece of history to underscore the importance of peace, acceptance, and equality. The sapling is from the chestnut tree that stood outside the annex where Anne Frank and her family hid for two years during the Holocaust for fear of being killed in concentration camps because they were Jewish. The tree outside Anne's Annex eventually became sick and fell over in a storm in 2010. Thankfully, however, numerous saplings had been taken from the tree to be planted and dedicated to Anne Frank and remind people throughout the world of the lessons learned in the Holocaust. The sapling planted in Seattle was one of only 11 like it given to organizations in the United States. The Holocaust Center for Humanity applied to receive the sapling, and they are so glad to share this special tree with Seattleites and visitors.
