This 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set commemorates the 10th anniversary of the attacks on New Yorks World Trade Center with three new special programs. This 3-DVD set contains:
VOICES FROM INSIDE THE TOWERS
At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, American Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Within minutes a deluge of telephone calls flooded into the outside world. This special 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set documents many harrowing, heartbreaking stories some never heard before of love and loss on 9/11. There is no video record of what happened inside the World Trade Center buildings during the 102 chaotic minutes before the towers were reduced to rubble. But, on this 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set Voices From Inside the Towers uses audio records, such as recorded phone calls from people inside the buildings some of whom perished and some who survived as they contacted family members and friends. 911 dispatchers provide a chillingly clear mental picture with the release of these recordings for this 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set.
9/11: THE DAYS AFTER
Examines the texture of life in the post-9/11 world, extending the story beyond the search for survivors, beyond the hunt for Osama bin Laden, beyond implementation of new airport and anti-terrorism security measures. This part of the 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set, The Days After, focuses on nuanced and oft-forgotten consequences: of a run on guns, bottled water, gas masks and cash; of Ground Zero becoming the biggest tourist destination in America; of Arab racial profiling and hate crimes; of false alarms across the country; and of 9/11-related illnesses among residents and first responders. Vast changes were spawned by 9/11 politically, culturally, sociologically, psychologically yet so much about how we live our lives today remains the same. This special 10th anniversary DVD set addresses the impact in a way no one has before.
MAKING THE 9/11 MEMORIAL
On the 10th anniversary of the September 11th terror attacks, the 9/11 Memorial (called "Reflecting Absence") will at last be unveiled to the public. Included in this 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set is a one-hour documentary DVD special filmed over the course of the past year. History presents a behind-the-scenes insider's view, from conception to on-site installation at Ground Zero. Key players share their creative journey, along with the staggering challenge of translating elegant ideas into reality, as they solve problems on the fly, invent ingenious techniques, and race against the clock, so that the Memorial, in all its simple grandeur, can open on 9/11/11. Get this 9/11 10th Anniversary DVD Set in your collection you never know who you might need to educate in the future. As it has been said, "History repeats itself." It's up to those of us who remember to make sure that doesn't happen this time.
