Number of Pages: 
64 p.
Note: 
Color photographs expand on the written account of a Holocaust memorial project in a town with no minorities. Whitwell, Tennessee is the setting; a school principal decided that diversity should be part of the curriculum and the Holocaust was chosen as a unit of study. As the students became more involved with the subject, they began to collect paper clips to represent the number of Jews killed in the Holocaust. Coincidences mounted and a German connection was found. The story of how they were able to create an actual museum makes for fascinating and inspiring reading. There is to be a film documentary on the same subject.
