H-Museum - September 11, 2001, Memory and Remembrance

H-MUSEUM's Current Focus: 9/11
Memory - Remembrance - Museum

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 archives, 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. For comments and suggestions, please contact the editors.
