Holocaust education groups unveiled a new DVD on Monday using testimonies from survivors to remind young people about the millions killed by the Nazis during World War II. The DVD was created from a collection of visual archives from the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, a Los Angeles-based organization founded by director Steven Spielberg. Similar DVDs from the organization have been used in schools in the United States, Poland and Germany. The DVD draws from nearly 52,000 video testimonies in 32 languages, said Doug Greenberg, executive director of the institute. It includes stories from survivors such as Harry Bibring, who's mother had died in a concentration camp. Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, which co-sponsored the launch, said the DVD brings the testimony of aging survivors to children.
