Anne Frank´s Horse Chestnut tree blown down in storm

The famous Horse Chestnut tree that Anne Frank described in her dairy while she and her family were hiding from the Nazis during the second world war has been knocked over in a storm.  The tree in Amsterdam has been called "Anne Frank´s tree".  The tree was about 150 years old and had survived pests, disease and many previous storms.  The image above gives a pretty clear idea of how badly damaged the tree is.
