I just found this interview, not sure if it has been posted before. BBC NEWS | UK | 'Tree of life' planted for peace A sapling derived from a tree grown in a Nazi concentration camp is to be planted by a Holocaust survivor to mark UN Peace Day. The tree was grown at the Theresienstadt camp in what is now the Czech Republic. It was kept alive by Jews held there, before being uprooted and re-planted outside the camp as part of a memorial to the thousands who had died. Seeds from the original tree were later taken and have been used to grow other saplings around the world. Steven Frank, who was liberated from Theresienstadt in 1945, has grown saplings derived from the original tree and will plant one at a school in Surrey. He spoke to Radio 4's Broadcasting House programme about the tree.
