News Americas, NY, NY, Fri. Sept. 11, 2015: Today, as many across the US pause to mark the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attack, many of the names of the Caribbean victims of September 11, 2001, ‘live’ on, on the bronze parapets surrounding the Memorial pools at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum in downtown Manhattan.

Names are stencil-cut into the parapets, allowing visitors to look through the names at the water, and to create paper impressions or rubbings of individual names. At night, light shines up through the voids created by each letter of a name.

The design of the names parapet provides a direct relationship between a visitor, the names, and the water, allowing for a feeling of quiet reverence between the visitor and the Memorial.

Those visiting the museum also enter an exhibition along a corridor in which portrait photographs of the nearly 3,000 victims form a “Wall of Faces,” communicating the scale of human loss.

Nearby, touch screen tables allow visitors to discover additional information about each person, including photographs, images of objects and audio remembrances by family, friends and coworkers. Rotating selections of personal artifacts are also featured. An inner chamber presents profiles of individual victims in a dignified sequence through photographs, biographical information and audio recordings.
