The garden of Anne Frank: photos, description, Jardin Anne-Frank)

The garden of Anne Frank opened in 2007 in the courtyard of the Museum of art and history of Judaism. It is seen that a new garden - although it is in full bloom roses, tulips, daffodils, irises, lilacs, but the trees are still low, long-legged, like teenagers. However, the Parisians had come to love this secluded quiet place, come here to eat a sandwich at lunch, play chess or take a walk with children.

Space is strictly planned out and divided into three parts. In the last planted Apple and cherry trees and a Playground, the average recreates the former here since the XVII century garden, and in the first part (where the visitor comes out of the impasse Bertaud) are growing Japanese maples, azaleas, hydrangeas, and a young fragile chestnut for the special fence. Chestnut this grew out of the Appendix the famous tree of Anne Frank, the memory of which is devoted to the garden.

Anne Frank - Jewish girl who died in a Nazi camp. Her family (parents and two daughters) in 1933, fled Germany to the Netherlands, when the Germans came there and began to persecute the Jews, the Franks were forced into hiding. Twenty-five months, eight people (family took him to the shelter four friends) were hiding in the back of the house, which was the company of Otto Frank. Then someone betrayed them to the Nazis. All were sent to Auschwitz. Survived only Otto.

All these months Anna, who dreamed of becoming a writer, kept a diary. It has been preserved, was published and became one of the most famous documents denouncing Nazism. In the diary are mixed childish innocence, teenage intransigence and adult observation. Anne wrote in detail about the life of asylum. Day light could only be seen from the attic window, and Anne often looked out at the sky and branches of chestnut. On it she watched as the seasons are changing.

That chestnut is no longer the tree that Anne Frank in Amsterdam was very eager to preserve, collapsed in a storm in 2010. But many of his appendages managed to put in different European parks, including in this Parisian garden.

In the "historic" part of the garden built a spectacular metallic pergola in the shape of a horseshoe. She has not grown climbing plants and looks weird and symbolic as cage, fence, image of freedom. Kids love to run on this corridor: runs, screaming, having fun and run out. They are free.

What's next? Pergola overgrown with greenery, trees will stretch, the chestnut will get stronger. Children become adults, bring their children here. Life always wins.
