This book tells the inspiring story of the teachers, students and community of Whitwell Middle School in Tennessee, and their quest to understand and teach about the Holocaust. The authors, White House correspondents for a group of German newspapers, helped the school publicize the project to collect six million paper clips to show just how many people were murdered and obtained a German railcar to house them. The book includes a lot of photos, quotes and behind-the-scenes information. It is a companion to the documentary film, Paper Clips.
