Honoring Memory, Lives in the 9/11 Memorial Museum

The family of Rosa Gonzalez, who worked in Tower One and was killed on 9/11, recently donated T-shirts, missing posters, and mass cards to the 9/11 Memorial Museum. These personal items, accompanied by recorded stories, will be preserved in Rosa’s memory in the Museum’s permanent collection.

They reflect the types of artifacts that will be shared with visitors in a memorial exhibition that will honor the individual lives of the nearly 3,000 victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 terrorist attacks. Victims’ loved ones are invited to help participate in the creation of the exhibition by sharing memories, objects, photos and other materials with the museum.
