“Revolution of Conscience”: Stephen D. Smith at TEDxUSC (video)

At an independently organized TED event (TEDx) held at USC in April 2011, USC Shoah Foundation Institute Executive Director Stephen D. Smith discussed the importance of Holocaust remembrance and how the educational use of survivors’ testimonies could inspire a “revolution in conscience” that could change the course of history.

“Just imagine if every single person in Europe [had] felt the pain of their neighbor and had listened one voice at a time, and had acted one voice at a time. The Holocaust would simply have been impossible.”
