In 2007 - 2008 Beth Spiegel, and Pauline von Moos started a movie project named → The Journey of the Gratitude Train.

The project also has the website → www.worldofthanks.net.

On both websites you can see a few unique photographs.


Unfortunately it seems that the movie project is put on hold.

The last update to the websites seems to be around January 2010.

On the other hand the websites are still there, and you would presume that they would have been removed if the movie project had been cancelled.

If the project is cancelled I hope that the collected material will be given to i.e. the Library of Congress in Washington DC, who already have some material; letters and photos; regarding "The Gratitude Train".


Hopefully the movie will soon appear.


Neither I nor my website are by no means affiliated with the movie project and I can neither encourage to nor caution against giving contributions to the movie project.
