The Legacy of "Schindler's List": Commemorating the Film's 30th Anniversary - Livestream


Sunday November 5

Time (Eastern Time)

3:00 PM  –  4:30 PM

Schindler’s List launched a movement. Steven Spielberg’s seminal film, released 30 years ago in late 1993, brought Holocaust remembrance to the forefront of popular culture. It also gave rise to the establishment of the USC Shoah Foundation, which activated thousands of volunteers around the world to record Holocaust testimonies, amassing one of the most substantial collections in the world. Three decades after the Oscar-winning movie's release, how has it contributed to the evolution of Holocaust history and memory? How have museums, memorial sites, and other Shoah-related films continued to preserve survivor stories? What still remains to be done? 

Join the Museum of Jewish Heritage and the USC Shoah Foundation for a panel discussion about the impact and legacy of the seminal film, featuring: 

  • Joel Citron, Chair, USC Shoah Foundation Board of Councilors 
  • Sara Lustig, Chair, International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance Croatia Co-Chair, daughter of Branko Lustig, Holocaust survivor and Producer of Schindler’s List 
  • Dr. Robert J. Williams, Finci-Viterbi Executive Director, USC Shoah Foundation
  • Moderated by Annette Insdorf, author of Indelible Shadows: Film and Holocaust and Professor in the Graduate Film Program of Columbia's School of the Arts
