The National September 11 Memorial & Museum has created the 9/11 Memorial YouTube channel, and they’re requesting your videos for an archive that will be part of the 9/11 Memorial Museum scheduled to open September 2012. The Memorial and Museum is the not-for-profit corporation created to oversee the design, fundraising, programming and operations of the Memorialand Museum at the World Trade Center.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani offers background about the project and a request for you to record a "silent video tribute" to create a living memorial for the Museum.



“Through this new YouTube channel, people around the world will have an opportunity to join our mission to document the history of 9/11 by sharing their personal experiences,” 9/11 Memorial President Joe Daniels said. “This channel is an example of the many ways the National September 11 Memorial Museum is ensuring the history we all lived through is never forgotten.”

This project was inspired by the 9/11 tribute album "Ten Years On." The album is a collection of songs compiled by Welsh recording artist Jem in remembrance of 9/11, from artists like John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Alanis Morissette, Johnny Cash, and more. For more information on how to donate or to reserve a free visitor pass to the Memorial, go to 911memorial.org.
