Bruce Springsteen will be performing at a spacial benefit gala to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the University of Southern California Shoah Foundation, which was founded by Steven Spielberg in 1994.  Spielberg's work on Schindler's List inspired him to collect and preserve testimonies from the survivors of the Holocaust, as well as from the survivors of other genocides.  The testimonies serve to educate and to help overcome intolerance, prejudice, and bigotry.

Springsteen will be joined by talk-show host Conan O’Brien and special guest Liam Neeson, who played Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List.  

Said Spielberg: 

"I am personally honored that Bruce, Conan, and Liam are joining me and lending their considerable talents to this year's special 20th anniversary gala.  Not only do they entertain and inform us through song, laughter and words, but by helping us commemorate this significant milestone, they also draw attention to the vital work of the USC Shoah Foundation."

Spielberg will be presenting the Ambassador for Humanity Award to President Barack Obama.

The Ambassadors for Humanity gala will take place in Los Angeles on May7th.
