As the nation gets ready to celebrate the 12th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, History Channel is getting set to air a new special, 9/11: Relics From The Wreckage as part of a programming block to commemorate the tragic events in New York, Washingtong D.C., and Shankesville, Pennsylvania.
History is reserving September 10 and 11 to air several specials, some of which we have already seen in prior years, which look at what happened on that Tuesday morning in September 12 years ago.
The highlight of the block will be the new special which will showcase five objects that will go in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum.
According to the legend the memorial attempts to honor those lost on 9/11 and that is the challenge that the creators of the museum faced putting it together.
“They must commemorate the fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children who never came home that day in 2001, while preparing to educate generations of visitors who weren’t yet born when the attacks took place. Museum President Joe Daniels introduces viewers to the museum still under construction and to the artifacts they have chosen to tell the story of 9/11.”
As many other news networks have done in the years since the terrorist attacks, History will show several specials which viewers have gone used to.
9/11 State Of Emergency, the story key political and military leaders, and ordinary men and women who suddenly found themselves on the frontlines of a new kind of war.
Grounded On 9/11, about how the Federal Aviation Administration decided to ground all planes and the challenges it faced landing the ones on the air safely.
The Man Who Predicted 9/11 a special about Morgan Stanley’s director of security, Rick Rescorla, who predicted the attack on the World Trade Center.
The Miracle Of Stairway B, the story of Josephine Harris and the firefighters of Ladder 6, who saved each other on the North Tower.
9/11: Relics from the Wreckage premieres on Tuesday, September 10 at 10 p.m. ET on the History Channel and H2.
