Remembering 9/11: Video

By History.com Staff
Twelve years later, HISTORY looks back at the September 11 attacks. The Emmy-nominated Remembering 9-11 series features items that are set for display in the National 9-11 Memorial Museum. Each video tells the story of one item and the people whose lives it touched on its way into the museum collection. The items range from as small as a set of flight attendants wings to as large as a steel beam cross recovered from Ground Zero.
