Paper Clips.

By Israel News Faxx Services

It began as a school lesson about prejudice. What happened next was a miracle. This inspiring family documentary reveals the moving true story of a group of Tennessee students who turned their Holocaust education into a valuable lesson for the entire world.

Their simple promise--to collect one paper clip for each person exterminated by the Nazis during World War II--led to them gathering more than 27 million paper clips, with more than 11 million being housed in a donated WWII railroad car memorial that was shipped to Whitwell, TN from Germany. Paper Clips is being shown on HBO this week.
