Must be seen in schools, 1 December 2005
Author: jotix100 from New York

This amazing document merits a view because it shows how a school project got children involved in understanding the fate of millions of human beings that perished during WWII because of the evil doing of a mad man. In fact, "Paper Clips" should be required viewing in schools as it clearly shows how hate and prejudice is so wrong in this society, and in the world.

Whitwell Middle School's principal, Linda Hopper, tells us about the town's history and racial make-up. Whitwell is basically a white lower middle class community. In fact, this impoverish town could be the perfect ground where prejudice could erupt, based on ignorance and how they perceive other people of different background and religion than theirs.

It's a credit to the teachers and the young students that got involved in the project to come to the realization about the horrible fate the Jews suffered during a period of modern history that shouldn't have happened. By collecting paper clips, a Norwegian symbol about their opposition of the senseless killings, the children get an education about something most hadn't been exposed to.

Elliot Berlin and Joe Fab deserve praise for bringing this uplifting documentary about tolerance and acceptance. Ultimately, the people of Whitwell, and especially the teachers that motivated their students to participate in the project are the clear winners for having gained knowledge about how to respect races and other cultures.
