‘Schinder’s List’ may be one of the most powerful movies of all time, and one that personalized the Holocaust in a way that no film had done before.  It wasn’t just skilled directing and acting that made this movie as good as it was though – Spielberg met with Holocaust survivors and listened to their stories, incorporating all of that into the film. Spielberg wants to make sure everyone can share in that and learn firsthand from people who were there, and so has founded the IWitness project.


IWitness is a project that archives the stories of survivors.  It contains interviews from over 52,000 survivors in 56 countries and in 32 languages. 1,300 of those videos are currently online and can be viewed now.  “A profound change can occur when even one person makes a choice,” says Spielberg.  “We can use IWitness to show that the best way to teach empathy is with examples of it.”
