Former US president Bill Clinton paid tribute on Friday to Anne Frank, the Jewish teenager whose diary entries, published in "Diary of a Young Girl" gave generations an intimate look at life under German occupation.

Saplings from a Chestnut tree in front of Frank's house in the Netherlands will be planted outside Clinton's presidential library Little Rock, Arkansas as part of a permanent installation.

The former president urged the audience, which included hundreds of schoolchildren to remember the "wisdom of a 14-year-old girl who in her spirit life is depending on us to redeem the years she could not have."

Clinton Foundation staff said the saplings will likely spend several weeks in a green house before being planted in order to adjust to the different climate in Little Rock.
