Stories in Memory of 9/11 Victims

As we remember those who died on September 11, 2001, you might want to listen to a few September 11 stories on StoryCorps.

For years, the nonprofit has been collecting stories from the family and friends of 9/11 victims. They also created a series of animations based on 9/11 stories. StoryCorps and NPR teamed up for a longer “We Remember” broadcast as well. Here’s more about the project:

StoryCorps set a goal with the 9/11 Memorial to record at least one remembrance for  each of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the attacks. To date, StoryCorps has memorialized 583 individual victims—almost a fifth of the 2,983 men, women, and children killed on 9/11 and February 26, 1993. StoryCorps is also collecting stories of rescue workers and survivors. In total, StoryCorps has recorded and archived 1,193 September 11th stories.
