    Check out the movie Paperclips (or Paper Clips). It was a project at a school in Whitwell TN to try and illustrate how extensive the Holocaust really was.

    Excellent movie: www.paperclipsmovie.com

    Kids tried to collect 6 million (I think it was 6 million) paper clips. Because 6 million people died in the holocaust. So they were collecting paper clips because it was a reasonably sized item that they could collect 6 million of.

    The magnitude of their amount of paper clips illustrated on a perceivable scale just how many people died in the holocaust.
