This movie brings tears of joy, pain, and sadness to your eyes. It is a story that needs to be kept alive and this documentary does just that through the children of Whitwell, TN. Highly recommend it! My niece saw it in school and demanded that we see it as a family. Buy it and cherish it. I would also love to have a copy of Alison Kraus' Jubilee but can't find it on an any CD.

This was a beautiful story. I insisted that my grandchildren see it. I would like to have the music "Jubilee", played in the movie. Where can I get a single of this music? I think this movie should get more notice.

I do not think that anything could depict teaching other cultures about "tolerance", "patience", "understanding", "human compassion", and "humanity" as this movie can. It was inspired by a Middle School Principal by the name of Linda Hooper who wanted to teach the predominantly Protestant children and their families about other cultures that they were not exposed to and not aware of. As a fellow Jew and the daughter of a man who lost his Mom and three bothers at the hands of Hitler and his orders to persecute the Jews in concentration camp and I had a grandmother and three uncles who I was deprived of ever being able to meet because of ignorance, intolerance, and senselissness. I think that everyone should take the time out to see this movie. It's inspiring and educational and you cannot walk away from this movie without being touched at the heart. It's a moving tribute to the memories of all of the Jews who perished in concentration camps and to their survivors and to those who were lucky enough to escape concentration camp and be Holocaust survivors as my dad is. My dad will be 89 years old in January and he still has vivid memories of those days back in Germany and how rought things were under the Hitler regime and he tells the story and says that he would not wish that on his worst enemy.
As a matter of fact one Summer a few years ago, on my parent's way home from vacation, they had not yet been made aware of Whitwell, TN and the Children's Holocaust Memorial or the book or DVD of Paper Clips and they made a wrong turn and stumbled across it merely by accident. That was the most inspiring trip of getting lost they had ever gone on. Unfortunately, they did not have much time that trip as it was an "unscheduled" stop. However, up their return home back to Florida they immediately began planning a trip that was based around going back to Whitwell, TN and spending time at this Memorial. As a matter of fact, the day that they were there, again by sheer accident they ran into Linda Hooper and she very graciously began conversing with them and as my dad was telling her about his background, needless to say, she became most interested and she invited my parent's into her office to continue the discussion. In between them finding Whitwell by accident and returning as a scheduled trip they had purchased the book Six Million Paper Clips and they brought it along with them. When they met Linda Hooper they asked her if she would please autograph the book for them, which she did proudly. I have already have a few phone conversations with Linda Hooper and she is a most charming woman and a very good example and role model for other human beings to follow. I would very "highly" recommend both the book Six Million Paper clips as well as the DVD Paper Clips. It is truly a heart-wrenching story. Unfortunately, this story is not make believe, all of the facts in this story are true. It's very hard to believe that we ever lived in such times. Hopefully, we never will again.
