September 11: Bearing Witness to History
July 1–August 15, 2004
The Japanese American National Museum is proud to present September 11: Bearing Witness to History, a touring exhibition originally opened by the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C., on the first anniversary of the attacks.
Bearing Witness captures the moments of the attacks and the immediate aftermath, sharing the voices of survivors and rescue workers and displaying objects left at memorial sites. Visitors will be able to record their own stories for the Smithsonian’s archives.
As a Smithsonian Affiliate, the National Museum is privileged to present this exhibition along with a thought-provoking slate of public programs that examine this defining moment from many points-of-view, including its connection to the Japanese American experience.
September 11: Bearing Witness to History is co-sponsored by the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy.
