9/11: Tenth Anniversay

The tenth anniversary of the terrorist attack of 9/11/2001 is an important date in the USA. There are lots of videos and documentaries in the mass media these days but you´ll find a classification of whatever kind of information you want about this date in Larry Ferlazzo´s entry in his blog: The Best Sites to Help Teach About 9/11

Fire fighters were the real heroes then, the civil servants everybody talked about, looked up to and thanked. This is a documentary made by a FDNY( = The Fire Department of New York ) fireman; it spans the time period before, during and after 9-11. NY fireman Mike Lennon of Engine Co. 15 was making a documentary about his fellow NY firefighters before Sept. 2001. After 9-11, Mike continued filming, featuring interviews with a fireman that perished on 9-11 as well as fellow survivors and family members during and after 9-11. The film also includes unique footage from ground zero.

And here´s another documentary about the changes in Ground Zero: Joel Meyerowitz was the only photographer with regular access to Ground Zero in the weeks and months following 9/11. Click here to read more about it.
