On September 11, 2011, the world will be watching as the 9/11 National Memorial Plaza opens on the site of the World Trade Center. 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 tenth anniversary of that world-changing event approaches. Heavily illustrated and elegantly designed, the 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 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 eight acres of downtown Manhattan into a lasting memorial to those lost in New York, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon. A solemn reminder, a historic keepsake, and a fascinating read, this is the official book published by and about the 9/11 National Memorial and Museum, created by those who have been working for years to honor the people who died that day. A special fold-out lists all the names of the victims, making the book itself an enduring memorial to those who died on September 11.
