United States Museum to Display Remnants of September 11 Attacks on World Trade Center
A New York City Fire Department engine recovered from the World Trade Center disaster site sits inside Hangar 17 at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport June 16, 2011. A program operated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, The World Trade Center steel program, is selecting portions of the steel recovered from the Center and donating it to cities, towns, firehouses and museums around the U.S. and the world who request it for use in 911 memorial sites in time for the 10 year anniversary of the 2001 attacks.

WASHINGTON (REUTERS).- When a hijacked aircraft smashed into the north tower of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, Lisa Lefler left behind her briefcase as she fled to safety from her office on the 103rd floor.

Fifty-six minutes later, 175 of Lefler's colleagues, as well as that briefcase, were entombed in the wreckage.

Lefler's briefcase, along with more than 50 objects collected after the attacks that claimed 3,000 lives, will be displayed September 3 to 11 at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, museum officials announced on Thursday.

"Ten years later, we will share some of those objects in a personal setting, providing an opportunity for visitors to speak with museum staff and to have a place to remember and reflect on what it means to be an American today," Brent D. Glass, the director of the museum, said in a statement.

Visitors to the collection, amassed by the museum in 2002 after Congress designated it the official repository, will see airplane fragments, a wall map from the Pentagon, a mangled fire truck door, as well as photographs and documents.

The objects were collected from the three attack crash sites -- the Pentagon, the World Trade Center and a field in western Pennsylvania. They will be preserved permanently at the museum so future generations can "comprehend the horrific events, their roots and their long-term consequences," according to information from the museum.

The collection, "September 11: Remembrance and Reflection," will also feature video footage and presentations by the directors of various September 11 memorials. The museum's September 11 collection may be viewed here
