The National September 11 Memorial and Museum has launched a new web project called “Make History” to tell the story of the terrorist attacks and their aftermath directly through the voices of those who experienced it.
“Do you have images or stories of the 9/11 attacks or their aftermath?” asks an email from the Joe Daniels, the president of the National 9/11 Memorial. ” Or of vigils and aid efforts you witnessed in your community, or of the long lines in airports in the days that followed? No matter where you were that day, you have a story to tell, and we are asking you to help Make History by sharing that story as we build our museum collections.”
Specifically, the museum is seeking:
— Images and videos of the terrorist attacks
— Images of people on that day from around the world
— The way the attacks were witnessed and experienced globally
— Vigils across the United States and the world
— Aid efforts across the United States and around the world
— Documentation of the World Trade Center prior to 9/11
