The preservation of one of the largest digital video archives in the world got underway this fall at the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, where staff began converting more than 100,000 hours of videotaped Holocaust testimonials to a new digital format.

The Foundation, originally established by filmmaker and USC Trustee Steven Spielberg, moved to the USC College of Letters, Arts and Sciences in 2006.  Spielberg was motivated to a great extent by a desire to guarantee the survival of the project he started.
