Video Project on Holocaust Moves to U.S.C.
One benefit of the move, Mr. Spielberg said, was that the foundation, which will become part of U.S.C., would be "taken more seriously" by potential donors than it had been "with a filmmaker at the helm."
The 12-year-old foundation, which grew out of Mr. Spielberg's experience making "Schindler's List," is nearly finished indexing its 120,000 hours of digitally recorded interviews with survivors in a way that makes them searchable.
Mr. Spielberg said the foundation's move from trailers on the Universal Studios lot to U.S.C., a leader in digital library management, would ensure that the interviews are preserved and more widely accessible.
