The official book created by the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, this keepsake volume honors those lost and celebrates the spirit of hope as it tells the story of rescue, recovery, and the building of the memorial plaza (opened on September 11, 2011), and the museum (opened on May 21, 2014).

This edition contains a chapter dedicated to the remarkable nine-story underground 9/11 Memorial Museum, full of interactive exhibits that honor the meaning of 9/11 and the nation s response to the disaster. Illustrations and text come from the 9/11 Memorial Museum s collection, including its extensive oral history transcripts. Poigna
