Newly updated, this is the one and only official companion book to the memorial plaza, created by the 9/11 Memorial Museum staff and originally published for its opening on the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Center attack. In somber words and chilling photographs--some never before published--the book tells the story of the World Trade Center buildings; the earthshaking attack; the aftermath, as anxious rescue efforts became months-long recovery; the public debate over how to commemorate those lost; the plans finally approved for a plaza and museum. This new edition contains a chapter dedicated to the remarkable nine-story underground 9/11 Memorial Museum, full of interactive exhibits that honor the meaning of 9/11 and the nation's response to the disaster. Illustrations and text come from the 9/11 Memorial Museum's collection, including its extensive oral history transcripts. Poignant and inspiring, this important book will win readers' minds--and hearts.
