The 9/11 Museum is dropping plans for special exhibitions to mark the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks this fall, because of a massive budget crisis.
"I see the memorial as a cemetery. The names on those brass plates are akin to a headstone. Where the name appears, sorry, is where they fell." said Paul Remenschneider. For Remenschneider, the pain of 9/11 is as though it happened yesterday. His uncle Christopher Wodenshek was killed in the terror attack.
"The feelings of emptiness. That void that it creates, created from those attacks, is still there," Remenschneider says. Remenschneider says he does not understand why there is a current controversy surrounding the 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
The pandemic created a budget crisis for the nonprofit that included massive layoffs and furloughs.
