Paper Clips

As today is Yom Hashoah, the day Jewish people remember the death of six million plus Jews during the Holocaust I though it would be a good idea to write about this unique documentary. I must confess I grabbed the DVD set thinking it was about the guy who started by selling a paper clip on eBay and ended up flipping until he owned a house so needless to say I was rather surprised to discover a film about a group Tennessee high school students who ended up collecting paper clips to gain a better understanding of the number six million. While the quality of this documentary is not of the highest standard the message and journey is a fantastic one which explores many topics including the reverse racism aspects. Not the lightest viewing by any means but certainly should be seen by anybody concerned with this horrid occurrence.
