An amazing collection of heart-wrenching and never-before-heard personal accounts of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and their effects.
This oral history of the September 11 terrorist attacks recalls the horrors of that day, and the struggle of Americans in the ensuing days, as told in the voices of those closest to the events at New York's World Trace Center, the Pentagon, and Somerset County, Pennsylvania.
Assembled as a series of personal accounts, 'Never Forget' takes the reader into each harrowing moment: in an apartment building that overlooks the twin towers, where a resident who noticed the first jet approaching calls a 911 operator; or into the burning buildings themselves, where policemen and firemen struggle to rescue civilians, or, after the collapse of the towers, to rescue their fellow officers and firemen from the crush of rubble.
Readers are also allowed into the lives of those who lost friends and relatives in the attacks. Families of people working in the World Trace Center share their remembrance of their final phone calls from loved ones, and the frantic search for survivors in the days that followed.
