Of course September eleventh means a lot. And it needs to be remembered. That´s why Smithsonian Channel has prepared a special. And Immediately following 9/11: DAY THAT CHANGED THE WORLD is the premiere of 9/11: STORIES IN FRAGMENTS at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The film tells the heart-rending stories behind the iconic objects in the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History’s 9-11 collection. Among them are a phone used in the last calls between a husband and his wife; the nametag of a hero; a briefcase found in a pile of rubble at Ground Zero, undamaged.  All are witnesses to history, and the film shows how the National Museum of American History’s curators chose them to represent one of the most infamous periods in American history.
