'Tree of life' planted for peace (UK)





The sapling being planted at a Surrey school for United Nations Peace Day is the latest of about 600 trees grown worldwide all derived from the same original plant - and each offering an inspiring symbol of hope and survival.

Trees have played a special part in Steven Frank's life, and now the keen gardener is hoping a special tree will play an important role in the life of many others.

Mr Frank is a survivor of a World War II concentration camp.

He is marking UN Peace Day by planting a sapling, derived from a tree which grew in the very camp he survived.
