“I stood on the roof of my apartment building in mid-town Manhattan that morning and watched as the first tower crumbled. The days that followed were a mixture of silence and chaos, with everything from bomb threat evacuations to Times Square being completely empty and quiet, “ remembers Jenny Bornstein, Interlibrary Loan Specialist. It has already been 8 years since the September 11 attacks and we are honoring those lost with a September Diversions display of materials about the event.

Sponsored by the Korean Peace Project, which seeks normalization of relationships between the United States and North Korea, these photos seek to educate people about the Korean Conflict and remind us of our connectedness. Photos are by Eric Sirotkin.
