10th Anniversary of 9/11
We are approaching the ten year anniversary of the September 11th attacks. Many federal agencies and educational institutions are observing this event with online memorials and resources, including the following:
- The Federal Bureau of Investigation has an online page called Ten Years After: The FBI Since 9/11. Here, you can watch videos of agents talking about their memories of responding to those events. You can also learn what types of changes the FBI has made since 9/11.
- The National Archives has a guide to 9/11 Commission Records. Some of these records have been digitized, like the Memoranda for the Record, a collection of interview summaries the Commission had with federal employees, citizens, and scholars.
- The Center for History and New Media and American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning have put together a September 11 Digital Archive. You can browse the site's collection of stories and memories shared by people, including stories recorded by visitors to the Smithsonian's Bearing Witness exhibition and emails sent to the Department of Justice.
In Utah, volunteer organizations around the state are commemorating 9/11 with a Day of Service and Rememberance. You can find ideas for volunteering and see a list of organizations looking for project volunteers and donations.
