AAA Editor Notes
Children's Holocaust Memorial and Paper Clip Project is at 1 Butterfly Ln. at Whitwell Middle School. To better grasp the number 6,000,000—the number of Jews exterminated by the Nazis—a middle-school class studying the Holocaust began collecting paper clips, which were worn by Norwegians to protest against Nazi occupation in World War II. A German rail car contains 11 million paper clips, while another 11 million are in a monument honoring the children of Terezin.
Letters and artifacts are available for viewing via student-led tours and at the Holocaust Resource Library during school hours.
Time: Allow 45 minutes minimum.
