University of Southern California announced on Friday (April 25th) that Spielberg will launch an establishment of a centre for advanced genocide research.  The main goal will be for the centre to research conditions that lead to genocides and maybe in the future avoid such tragedies, persecution  and human loss.

Specifically, the center will focus on three aspects of genocides, said Spielberg, who established the Shoah Foundation 20 years ago, following release of his Oscar-winning movie, “Schindler’s List.” He was joined by USC President C.L. Max Nikias for the press conference on campus.
The three announced research areas are resistance to genocide and mass violence; violence, emotion and behavioral change; and digital genocide studies.
“The USC Shoah Foundation has made tremendous progress during its first 20 years, but its work is far from finished,” Spielberg said. “The Institute has collected and indexed nearly 52,000 testimonies and established educational programs, such as iWitness and Teaching with Testimony that bring people who experienced history into classrooms around the world.
“Now comes the next significant chapter, one that establishes the Institute as one of the leading academic centers of excellence for the study of the Holocaust and genocides. The potential is there for groundbreaking research.”
The video below shows Spielberg talking about the Holocaust and what we've learnt and how we must act on what we learn.
