The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, have become an event of world
history, which is explored by historians, museum specialists, archivists,
librarians, and other scientists. Exhibitions aim at keeping alive the
memory of the thousands of victims, recollections are collected in
museums store the relics of the attacks retrieved from the rubble of the
collapsed Twin Towers, from the rubble of the points of impact at the
Pentagon Building and in Pennsylvania. On the Internet too 9/11 is a day of
remembrance. At numerous private and "official" websites the victims of the
attacks are remembered.
In 2002 H-MUSEUM made 9/11 the subject of its "Current Focus". One year
after the event a comprehensive survey was given of how the terrorist
attacks had been reflected in the remembrance culture of the media as well
as in the field of museums and archives.
In 2003 H-MUSEUM wants to document the situation two years after the
momentous series of attacks.
