Oscar-winning film director, writer and producer Steven Spielberg stressed on Monday the importance of gathering testimony to horrors such as the Holocaust in order to create awareness and preventative policy for the future.

"Mass graves don’t have to open up before we act," Spielberg said in the keynotes address of a UN memorial ceremony commemorating the victims of the Holocaust. "It is a great accomplishment of our species that the testimonies [of survivors] can be heard in the high chambers of society."

The director of the epic Holocaust-era film Schindler's List said the memory of the Holocaust remained with us today and victims of the past genocide had now become "teachers to victims of recent genocide."
