Upcoming Public Program: “The Abbottabad Papers”


We are pleased to present the next program in our When the World Changes digital conversation series, “The Abbottabad Papers,” at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, March 31.

The Abbottabad Papers, valuable intelligence on al-Qaeda gathered by the U.S. Navy SEALs who killed Osama bin Laden in his compound in Pakistan in 2011, comprise hundreds of thousands of pages. Nelly Lahoud, a senior fellow in New America’s International Security program, who has read all the seized documents will discuss her forthcoming book, Eighteen Minutes: Bin Laden's Abbottabad Papers, about what these materials reveal.

The When the World Changes series is dedicated to offering insight, empathy, and expertise toward past and present challenges by drawing on lessons learned from 9/11 history: how strength was expressed in a time of sorrow, how unimaginable problems were solved, and how tragedy and adversity were met with resilience and hope.

Live captioning will be provided for this program. Join us at 911memorial.org/watch.

Stories of Hope: Rescued from the Rubble

“As a photographer, the light is always changing down at the World Trade Center. It could be a grey day, a rainy day, a snowy day. If you showed up every single day at exactly the same time, the Trade Center site looks different, and for me that’s a true impetus to move forward, to keep on living, keep on surviving, keep on worrying about other New Yorkers.”
