Journalists' Memories of September 11
Our friends at the Dart Society have posted a special report collecting journalists’ memories of and reflections on the upcoming September 11 anniversary. The centerpiece is an evocative and unsettling collage of essays and video by New York journalist Jacques Menasche on the impact of the attacks on his young son and other children who were attending school nearby.
Menasche’s unflinchingly honest report is accompanied by brief recollections and thoughts by a dozen other reporters and photographers. Some, like New York Daily News photographer David Handschuh and former New York Post reporter Maria Alvarez, were as up close and personal with the collapse of the World Trade Center as you could get. Some experienced the attacks from the distance of Chile, Oklahoma City or a Massachusetts classroom.
