Event Description

Memorializing an event of mass violence is increasingly seen as an important element of social resilience in the aftermath of an attack.  Yet finding a narrative that balances the imperatives of memory and history poses a dilemma for memorial planners around the world.  The 9/11 Memorial Museum faced that challenge publicly, in a global context where elements of the 9/11 story have driven policy-making for 20 years.
