I've wanted to visit this site for a while. It hits one in the gut but leaves you with hope for the future. Both the students and teachers did a wonderful job with this.

I believe that the Childrens Holocaust Musem will advise you where to send paperclips if you were inclined to do so. I wish i could help you more.

From Googling it, it appears to be open 9 am to 7 pm daily seven days a week. There is a phone number listed so I think I would call to make sure they were going to be open.
