Reseña del editor:

On September 11, 2011 the world will be watching as the 9/11 National Memorial Plaza opens on the site of the World Trade Centre. With photographs and architectural plans never before published, paired with comments in the very voices of those who witnessed the event, those who struggled in its shadow for days and months after, and those who have dedicated the years since to rebuilding a place of hope and meditation at Ground Zero, this book will stand apart from all the rest as the 10th anniversary of that world-changing events approaches. Heavily illustrated and elegantly designed, this book recalls the excitement and symbolism of the Twin Towers, the horror and chaos of the attack of 9/11, the fierce devotion and exhaustion as rescue of living victims became a recovery of remains. But it also carries on from that date in history to tell the inside story of the long, complex, and sometimes contentious efforts to turn 8 acres of Downtown Manhattan into a lasting memorial to those lost in New York, Washington, and Pennsylvania. A solemn reminder, a historic keepsake, and a fascinating read, this is the official book published by and about the 9/11 National Memorial Museum, created by those who have been working for years to honour those who died that day. A special fold-out list all names of the nearly 3,000 victims, making the book itself and enduring memorial to those who died on September 11.
