A sapling originally grown by children in the Terezin transit camp will be planted in Chicago. The tree will be planted in a special ceremony at the Chicago Botanic Garden on Monday. The sapling was given to Irma Lauscher, a teacher in Terezin who secretly held classes for children, by a sympathetic camp guard.
