When the 9/11 Memorial Museum opens next year, its first exhibit will be spare and elegant, enveloping visitors with the personal accounts of people from around the world describing where they were, and what they felt, on Sept. 11, 2001.
Visitors will step through a collage of voices, speaking together in many languages: "I was in Honolulu, Hawaii." "I was in Cairo, Egypt." "On the Champs-Elysees in Paris." "São Paulo, Brazil." Panels will display maps fashioned from their words. "So angry." "So alone and lost." "Impossible, impossible, impossible." More.
