Overview
Published to coincide with the fifteenth anniversary of 9/11, this book emphasizes the highlights of the museum's interpretation of this somber day. This book is the definitive, official companion volume to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum. It provides visitors with a lasting record of their experience at the museum, and tells the story of September 11 through essays on and photographs of the installations and thoughtfully curated artifacts that serve as touchstones to the day and its aftermath. It also provides a behind-the-scenes glimpse--through photographs and planning concepts--into the evolution of the museum from idea to finished entity. By maximizing the visual impact through the innovative use of photography and design, the book immerses the reader in the visceral emotion of both the museum and the day--September 11--itself. No Day Shall Erase You offers an authoritative narrative of 9/11, as it is presented in the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, and as told by Alice M. Greenwald, the museum's director, and other key staff who planned and built the museum. Focusing on the historic impact of the event, No Day Shall Erase You recognizes the central importance 9/11 has in America's national memory, as well as putting the day into context fifteen years later.

Published to coincide with the 15th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil, this official companion to the National September 11 Memorial Museum—located where the Twin Towers once proudly stood—transports readers back to that dark day and the ensuing weeks, months, and years. An engraving of a line from Virgil's Aeneid, "No day shall erase you from the memory of time," forged in steel recovered from the site of the attacks, is the centerpiece of a 140-foot-long, 34-foot-high concrete wall that separates the museum's public space from a repository of victims' remains not open to the public. As of the 15th anniversary, 40% of the victims had not yet been identified, despite "extraordinary efforts" to do so. The book presents the efforts to memorialize those victims in the museum and the behind-the-scenes strategies at work in, for example, presenting disturbing subject matter or archiving dust (considered by many survivors to be sacred). Vivid photos and several insightful essays by museum staff complement text written respectfully and with understated authority by Greenwald, the memorial and museum's director and executive vice president for exhibitions, collections, and education. The book is a tribute to those who died on 9/11 as well as a powerful exploration of collective memory. (Sept.)
