Interview with Tracy Webb - Pentagon Survivor

Voices of 9.11 is a unique collection of personal video testimonies recorded in 2002 and 2003. At a time when language to describe the experience was still being formed, Voices of 9.11 traveled from New York City, to Shanksville, PA, Washington DC and the Pentagon to record over 500 video narratives. Inside a private video booth participants started and stopped their own recording. Absolutely no restrictions were placed on what could or could not be said. Participants could speak for any length of time and in whatever language they felt most comfortable.

Today Voices of 9.11 is jointly held by the New-York Historical Society and the September 11 Digital Archive which has initiated a long term plan to donate its entire collection to the Library of Congress for permanent preservation.
