Museum Holds 9/11 Memorial Discussion

Play associated audio

Debate still surrounds proposed and completed memorials in New York City, at the Pentagon, and in Pennsylvania as the tenth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks draws near.

Each project has also experienced its fair share of delays. Currently, memorials in New York and Pennsylvania are still under construction.

Tonight, key people involved in each project will come together: the director of the National September 11th Memorial and Museum in New York, the president of the Pentagon Memorial Fund, and the site manager of the Flight 93 National Memorial in Pennsylvania.

They will discuss how each site is memorializing the event, and the challenges of commemorating recent history. The discussion begins at 6:30 p.m., and admission is free. Pre-registration is closed for the event, but on-site registration may be available.
