They started by videotaping one Holocaust survivor's story. Then came another and another. Nearly 20 years have passed, and the stories have added up - to almost 52,000 eyewitness accounts collected all over the world. Each month, the USC Shoah Foundation gives a public tour to talk about the collection and how it is being used. People gather in the lobby, where a collage of faces stripes the walls beneath the words: "Every survivor has a story to tell. " On a recent morning, an elegant 91-year-old woman sat on a couch beneath that message, waiting for the tour to begin.

California may be the bluest of states, but at an event on the Universal Studios back lot not long ago, everything was bathed in a warm pink light. It brought back days when the country seemed less divided, both color-wise and otherwise, which certainly gave the guest of honor his hue.

OPINION
December 24, 2010
Most who suffer unspeakably at the hands of others look for ways to forget, to resume a normal life as best they can. Some, however, assume the duty of witness in the hope that truthful memory will protect those who come after them. The passing of these heroic men and women ought not to go unremarked upon. J. Michael Hagopian, who died this month in Thousand Oaks, was one such man. He was just 2 years old in 1915, when his parents hid him in a well behind their home because they believed they were about to be killed by Ottoman Turkish soldiers, who were massacring Armenians across eastern Anatolia.
