I watched the movie Paper Clips yesterday and just have to give it a plug. I may be the last person on the planet who has heard of it, but in case I am not.
here is the link to netflix the movie Paper Clips.
Link to the movie trailer.
It is so worth your time. It is about a small school in a small town in Tennessee who started a project to collect 6 million paper clips to represent each person who died in the Holocaust. It will teach you about tolerance, prejudice and the reason they picked the paper clip to me was a wonderful story to learn. If I was still in Tennessee I would love to go visit the memorial this school built. I won't tell you what they made it out of to hold all the paper clips to keep anyone in suspense, it is a wonderful documentary!
My favorite line of the the movie was the principal who said after this project she learned that she never wants to be an instrument for pain for anyone.
