From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Anne Frank rose planted in Britain for first time
Thursday 26 January 2012
Farhad Vahidi, an Iranian refugee who is seeking asylum in Britain with his family, planted the rose at the Jewish Museum garden in Manchester.
It was part of a Holocaust Memorial Day event linked with Manchester-based Refugee and Asylum Seeker Participatory Action Research.
The flower, grafted from a rose made in the year of Anne’s birth in 1929 and another made in the year of her death, was created in Europe in 1960.
Anne was born in Germany but lived most of her life in the Netherlands. Her diary detailing her life under nazi occupation in World War II gained posthumous international fame.
