I had always looked into the windows of the houses around the courtyard. In most windows, I saw people working and children playing. When the soldiers came, people began covering their windows, so I couldn’t see inside anymore.

But the tiny attic window of the narrow brick house behind Otto Frank’s business offices had no window shade. For a long time, the rooms were empty. Then one day, Otto’s whole family came to live there. They called their new home the Secret Annex. . . .

This is a story of Anne Frank and her sister Margot, who loved a tree, and the tree who promised never to forget them.

Ages 6–9.

“Rabbi Sasso’s book imagining what Anne Frank’s tree witnessed will engage the imaginations of generations of children to come while teaching about Anne and Margot Frank and the Holocaust.”
—Eva Mozes Kor, Holocaust survivor and founder of CANDLES Holocaust Museum and Education Center

Anne Frank and the Remembering Tree is steeped in the notion of radical empathy. The book concludes with 'the promise of two young girls who loved a tree and the tree who remembered them.’ In Sasso’s lyrical and moral vision, Anne Frank’s beloved chestnut tree serves as witness, persona, and educator. This gentle, powerful book deserves to be a classic work about tolerance for children and educators of all faiths.”
—Amy Gottlieb, Tikkun Daily
