On Thursday evening, March 28, 2013, USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education held its third annual Student Voices Film Contest awards ceremony and screening. The event took place at the USC School of Cinematic Arts. The Student Voices Film Contest challenges USC students to “join the conversation about genocide and human rights” by producing a five- to seven-minute film using testimony from the Institute’s Visual History Archive, which contains video interviews with survivors and eyewitnesses of the Holocaust.

Over the last few days I’ve overheard my grandmother and father talk endlessly about Celia Tiano, an Auschwitz survivor from Salonika, Greece, their next-door neighbor on 7th Avenue -- a quiet block in the Hyde Park area of L.A., during the 1950s and 60s. After more than 40 years, my family has reconnected with Celia -- through testimony. We were able to make this connection because of a film project I had been working on for the Student Voices Short Film Contest.
