9/11 Living Memorial | Overview
About the 9/11 Living Memorial Project
The 9/11 Living Memorial Project is a digital archive that documents the lives that were lost, the firsthand accounts of rescue workers and survivors, and the recovery of corporations at the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and Shanksville, PA. The archive includes memorials and foundations and will expand over time to showcase the caring, courage and compassion the world experienced that day. Audio and video such as oral histories and family videos will be included.
Since 2006, VOICES has hosted workshops across the country and met with families one-on-one to create thousands of tributes. VOICES staff digitizes photos, biographies, eulogies and other written materials and photographs tangible items such as personal belongings and artwork. Memorializing their loved ones can be a healing and emotional day of remembrance for families. Our team of social workers helps participants through the process of organizing these fragile mementos to create a meaningful tribute to their loved ones.
The 9/11 Living Memorial, originally conceived by Septemberís Mission, will be incorporated into the National September 11
Memorial & Museumís permanent collection as a core component of its planned Digital Resource Center. The 9/11 Living Memorial was recently featured by the Clinton Global Initiative and is currently online at www.911livingmemorial.org.
