Last year the town announced plans to coordinate a 9-11 living history initiative. We plan to interview survivors, first responders, observers, family members --those who were impacted by 9-11. We want to tell their stories.
The first interview is now complete. The interview was conducted by Barry Liebowitz of Greenburgh. We're looking for additional interviews. We have a great team of volunteers who are donating their services to the town and expect that future interviews will be televised at different locations: at police , fire, ambulance headquarters in the villages and unincorporated section of town. We can conduct individual interviews. Or--if a group of people are interested in being interviewed together, we could arrange for that kind of interview. I also hope that children of first responders will interview their parents as part of this project.
The interviews will be aired non stop every 9-11 on Greenburgh public access, the stories will be given to the library to archive, we will share the interviews with the 9-11 museum in NYC and will also give copies to school districts. Years from now future generations will have a better appreciation of the impact 9-11 had on individual Greenburgh residents lives.
A link to the first interview is below. It's very moving. If interested in joining the committee or being interviewed please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
