Library of Congress Posts 9-11 Project
As part of American Memory, the American Folklife Center has brought together recordings of people's immediate reactions to the 9-11 disaster. The September 11, 2001 Documentary Project is provided through the Library of Congress. Based on a similar project done after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, an email was sent on September 12th to folklorists. The collection consists of more than 400 sound and video recordings and more than 400 graphic materials. You can search the collection (using simple Boolean and phrase), browse by title and subject, or browse by format (audio, photograph/drawing, video, written narrative).
