Join us for a viewing of the documentary Paper Clips. In 1998, the children of Tennessee’s Whitwell Middle School took an extraordinary project inspired by their principal, Linda Hooper. Linda Hooper tells the moving story of how the students behind the Paper Clips Project responded to what had been to them a completely unfamiliar chapter in human history – the Holocaust. The Paper Clips Project grew out of a sense that the students in the homogeneous community weren’t learning about the lives and experiences of other groups. Struggling to grasp the concept of six-million Holocaust victims, the students decided to collect six million paper clips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. This amazing project would change the students, their teachers, their families, and the entire town forever…and eventually, open hearts and minds around the world as this remarkable story became an award-winning film entitled Paper Clips. Linda Hooper will be speaking at Congregation Shalom on Sunday, April 30th at 2:00 pm.
The documentary is 84 minutes long and there will be a talk-back with Rabbi Noah Chertkoff following the film.
Free & Open to the Public.
