Holocaust Memorial Day 27th January

Martin Niemoller the German theologian who lived through the Holocaust wrote:

When Hitler attacked the Jews I was not a Jew,
therefore I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the Catholics, I was not a Catholic,
and therefore, I was not concerned.
And when Hitler attacked the unions and the industrialists,
I was not a member of the unions and I was not concerned.
Then, Hitler attacked me and the Protestant Church
- and there was nobody left to be concerned.

Jesus said:
Love your neighbour as much as you love yourself.

Edmund Burke said:
It is necessary only for the good man to do nothing for evil to triumph.

Whitwell, TN is a small, rural community of less than two thousand people nestled in the mountains of Tennessee.
Its citizens are almost exclusively white and Christian.
In 1998, the children of Whitwell Middle School took on an inspiring project, launched out of their principal's desire to help her students open their eyes to the diversity of the world beyond their insulated valley.
What happened would change the students, their teachers, their families and the entire town forever... and eventually open hearts and minds around the world.
PAPER CLIPS is the moving and inspiring documentary film that captures how these students responded to lessons about the Holocaust-with a promise to honor every lost soul by collecting one paper clip for each individual exterminated by the Nazis.

This next video has some hard hitting video for older students. Not suitable for primary.
