Iowa Ag Connection - 05/16/2022

Yhe University of Iowa became the 13th location in the United States to plant a sapling grown from the chestnut tree that symbolized hope for Anne Frank as she hid from the Nazis during World War II.

Hundreds of people turned out to listen to speakers and witness the planting on the northeast corner of the Pentacrest.

The effort was led by Kirsten Kumpf Baele, a lecturer in the Department of German at Iowa.

Kumpf Baele, a Holocaust scholar and instructor of the popular undergraduate seminar Anne Frank and Her Story, submitted a lengthy proposal to the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect's Sapling Project for the UI to receive a tree, including letters of support from the local Jewish community, the UNESCO City of Literature, and UI campus leaders.
