Sonoma State University - Sapling Planting Ceremony

Sonoma State University will be the first University in the United States to plant a sapling from Anne’s Chestnut Tree. On Sunday April 14, 2013 Sonoma State University faculty and students will join donors to the University’s Holocaust and Genocide Program and individuals associated with its Jewish Studies Program to commemorate Anne Frank’s legacy during a public sapling planting ceremony. The event will also honor Helena Foster, a Holocaust survivor whose donations to Sonoma State University have made it possible for a circle of 18 trees to be planted near Anne’s sapling. The ceremony is scheduled to take place at the Erna and Arthur Salm Salm Holocaust Memorial Grove near the campus lakes. Tours of the sapling site will begin in late April. For more information contact Andrea Rodriguez.
