SECOND GENERATION LOS ANGELES

invites you to a special screening of

“PAPERCLIPS”

Whitwell Middle School in rural Tennessee is the setting for this documentary about an extraordinary experiment in Holocaust education. Struggling to grasp the concept of six million Holocaust victims, the students decide to collect six million paperclips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. The film details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community forever.

GUEST SPEAKERS –
Dagmar and Peter Schroeder

Authors of Paperclips: The Making of the Children’s Holocaust Memorial, named “An Association of Jewish Libraries Notable Children’s Book”

The Schroeders, White House correspondents for a group of German newspapers, helped the school publicize the project to collect millions of paperclips. This amazing couple was instrumental in the project’s success and was responsible for finding and procuring a rail car that was used to transport Jews to concentration camps. The train is now known as the Children’s Holocaust Memorial in Whitwell, Tennessee.
