No Day Shall Erase You Paperback
By Alice M. Greenwald & Michael R. Bloomberg.
Published to coincide with the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11, this book emphasizes the highlights of the museums interpretation of this somber day. This book is the definitive, official companion volume to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. It provides visitors with a lasting record of their experience at the museum, and tells the story of September 11 through essays on and photographs of the installations and thoughtfully curated artifacts that serve as touchstones to the day and its aftermath. It also provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse through photographs and planning concepts into the evolution of the museum from idea to finished entity.
By maximizing the visual impact through the innovative use of photography and design, the book immerses the reader in the visceral emotion of both the museum and the day September 11 itself. No Day Shall Erase You offers an authoritative narrative of 9/11, as it is presented in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, and as told by Alice M. Greenwald, the museums director, and other key staff who planned and built the museum. Focusing on the historic impact of the event, No Day Shall Erase You recognizes the central importance 9/11 has in Americas national memory, as well as putting the day into context fifteen years later.
A Place of Remembrance
This updated edition details the development of the museum, opened in 2014, including photos of the permanent exhibits honoring the fallen. The memorial - and this book about it - are not only tributes but also reminders of a powerful connection we all share through the triumph of the human spirit.
A Place of Remembrance honors the fallen and celebrates the spirit of hope as it tells the emotional story behind the creation of the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, from the tragic events of 9/11 to the process of rebuilding on these eight sacred acres in downtown Manhattan. Like the Memorial, this official commemorative book is a lasting tribute to those lost in New York, Pennsylvania, and at the Pentagon, and it lists the names of all the victims and where to find the inscriptions on the Memorial.
