9/11 Living Memorial Plaza

Did you know that this monument was erected in Jerusalem?

It measures 30 feet and is made of granite bronze and aluminum. A piece of melted metal from the ruins of the Twin Towers forms part of the base on which the monument rests. It takes the form of an American flag waving and transforming into a flame at the tip. Embedded on the metal plate are the names of all the victims tragically lost that day.

Israel also issued a postage stamp with the 9/11 Memorial plaza as a tribute to the World Trade Center victims.
Thank you Israel
