Remembering 9/11: U.S. Homeland Security Digital Library Offers Password-Accessible Materials

As we near the 20th anniversary of 9/11, the U.S. Homeland Security Digital Library is offering “20 Years After 9/11: A Selection of Webinars“. It’s a means of revisiting the origins of the war on terror in 2001.

“To commemorate 9/11,” the post begins, “HSDL has selected upcoming webinars from various research centers and think tanks, highlighting personal memories as well as global repercussions. Among these webinars is a seminar from the National Maritime Historical Society titled Remembering the 9/11 Boatlift: The Largest Water Evacuation in American History. This event is a tribute to the maritime efforts that successfully evacuated more than 500,000 civilians in just 9 hours- a rescue effort coordinated by the New York City Fire Department and the U.S. Coast Guard. It will begin with a screening of the short documentary film Boatlift: An Untold Tale of 9/11 Resilience narrated by Tom Hanks and will continue with a panel discussion.

To examine the lasting impact of 9/11 globally, the Wilson Center will host a virtual event with a regional focus on the Middle East, South Asia, and Europe. “Global Impact of 9/11: Twenty Years On” will feature a discussion with experts on the legacy of 9/11 with regard to regional instability, jihadism, politics, and U.S. global leadership.”

It’s necessary, however, to have password access to the Center for Homeland Defense and Security (CHDS) to reach these materials.
