Dear FOS11 Member,

Please see the announcement below from the National September 11 Memorial and Museum about the StoryCorps September 11th Initiative.


The National September 11 Memorial & Museum at the World Trade Center invites you to participate in the StoryCorps September 11th Initiative on Friday, September 5th and Friday September 12th at their office, which is located at One Liberty Plaza in New York city (on the east side of the World Trade Center site).  The Memorial Museum is honored to be working in partnership with StoryCorps, one of the largest oral history projects of its kind, to collect a remembrance for each of the lives lost in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and the World Trade Center bombing on February 26, 1993, as well as, narratives of survival and witness testimonies.  These 9/11 remembrances will be permanently archived both at the Library of Congress and also in the Memorial Museum’s permanent collection.


Memorial Museum and StoryCorps staff will work with you to record your remembrance, which can be up to 40 minutes long and appointments must be scheduled in advance.  For more information about the program, suggested interview questions and/or to schedule your appointment, please contact Caitlin Zampella, the Memorial Museum’s Director of Program Partnership Initiatives at (212) 312-8788 or czampella@sept11mm.org.
