FILE - In this March 3, 2004 file photo, Steven Spielberg, director of the 1993 World War II epic "Schindler's List," speaks at a news conference at Universal Studios in Universal City, Calif. Spielberg was inspired to create the Shoah Foundation after meeting so many Holocaust survivors while making “Schindler’s List,” which tells the story of a German businessman who used his Nazi ties to rescue 1,100 Jews from the Holocaust. The film’s greatest legacy isn’t its seven Oscars, $300 million in worldwide box office or even its message of humanity, says the 67-year-old, Spielberg, but the ongoing work of the Shoah Foundation.
