It started with a paper clip.

Sixth grade students at Whitwell Middle in Whitwell, Tenn. School began collecting paper clips a few years ago to represent the lives lost during the Holocaust.

Twenty four million paper clips later, their project has garnered international attention.

Teachers at Wetumpka Intermediate School took notice, and used Whitwell as a model for teaching their students about the Holocaust.
