The 9/11 Memorial & Museum and the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey will hold a ceremony today to honor the six people who were killed in the first attack at the World Trade Center on February 26, 1993.

The ceremony will include a moment of silence and reading of the names of John DiGiovanni, Robert Kirkpatrick, Stephen Knapp, William Macko, Wilfredo Mercado and Monica Rodriguez Smith. Victims’ families, friends, survivors and Port Authority officials will place flowers near the names of the victims that are inscribed on the bronze parapet of the 9/11 Memorial’s North Pool.
