From Mon Aug 31, 2009 3:00 am to Fri Sep 04, 2009 2:59 am (included)
|Request From the National September 11 Memorial Museum:
Where were you on 9/11? Do you have video or photo images, or stories you want to share, about what you watched on TV that morning? Of your friends sitting in class that day when you heard about the attacks? Of the vigils and the aid efforts you witnessed? Or of people standing in closed airports in the days that followed?
If you or anyone you know has images or written accounts of the terrorist attacks and their aftermath, we invite your participation now.
The National September 11 Memorial Museum is dedicated to preserving the history of 9/11, and to telling the story through the voices of those who experienced it. It is estimated that 1/3 of the world’s population witnessed the events of 9/11 on that day, and we are seeking documentation of the attacks and their aftermath from the broadest possible perspective.
9/11 had global implications and this is a world-wide call for submissions, from witnesses in the streets of lower Manhattan and Washington, D.C. to those watching it on TV in Osaka and Moscow.
We are interested in:
-- Images and videos of the terrorist attacks
-- Images of people on that day from around the world
-- The way those attacks were witnessed and experienced globally
-- Vigils across the United States and the world
-- Aid efforts across the United States and the world
-- Documentation of the World Trade Center prior to 9/11
The history of 9/11 is still being written, and we invite you to become a part of it by sharing your images, video and written accounts. If you know anyone who was particularly touched by the events of 9/11, we urge you to forward them this email.
All media that is submitted will be displayed and mapped on an innovative web interface that will launch this September. Click here for a preview of the website.
