Feb. 25, 2016
SHANKSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Stuffed animals, toys and drawings left by children after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks will be on display at the Flight 93 National Memorial's Learning Center next month.
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports (http://bit.ly/1mZUFYB ) the temporary exhibit "Through Their Eyes" will include about 50 items left in Somerset County in the days after the terrorist attacks.
Soon after the attacks, visitors made trips to the Shanksville site and a fence at the temporary memorial was quickly covered with license plates, flags and other memorabilia. Stuffed animals, trinkets and pictures were tucked into the lower rings of the fence or placed on the ground.
The exhibit will be open Saturdays and Sundays in March at the memorial, which honors the passengers and crew of the hijacked plane that crashed during the attacks.
