小编摘要:时间飞逝,本周末就是9·11恐怖袭击十周年了,为了纪念这个沉痛的日子,美国联邦调查局展出了一些当时残留下来的物品。在回顾沉痛历史的同时,也祈望世界永远和平。

导读:手机、呼机、飞机发动机、巡警车门、母亲的钱包和信用卡。这些都是在恐怖分子劫持两架飞机撞击纽约世贸大厦的9•11袭击事件中残留下来的物品。名为“反恐战争:FBI新焦点”的展览将于周五开放,提前纪念9•11恐怖袭击十周年。新闻博物馆选取了60件联邦调查局收藏的用于恐怖事件审判的证据,其中包括撞击世贸大厦后残留的大块飞机碎片。

Cell phones and pagers, airplane engines, a door from a police squad car, a mother`s wallet and credit cards. Those items survived when terrorists flew two planes into the World Trade Center towers in New York City during the September 11 attacks.

The Newseum in Washington, D.C., is expanding its FBI exhibit with a new display of artifacts from 9/11 and other terrorist plots that have never been on display to the public before.

"War on Terror: The FBI`s New Focus" will open Friday in plenty of time for the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. The Newseum selected 60 pieces of evidence the FBI had in storage for use in terror trials, including huge pieces of an airplane that survived ramming into the World Trade Center towers.

"I think the most powerful pieces here are the most personal," said Cathy Trost, director of exhibit development at the Newseum. "The things that people put in their pockets that morning not knowing that this was going to be a day that changed their lives forever."

Perhaps the most heart-wrenching items on display belonged to Ruth McCourt of New London, Connecticut. McCourt was taking her 4-year-old daughter, Juliana, to visit Disneyland. They were aboard United Flight 175, which was the second plane to hit the World Trade Center. McCourt`s wallet was found in the debris, battered but still intact. It`s on display along with three credit cards. A picture of McCourt and Juliana at the beach is also shown.

"A lot of family members want to make sure there are public displays because they don`t want people to forget what they lost that day," said Susan Bennett, a Newseum senior vice president.

A sampling of the many cell phones and pagers are part of the exhibit. "It`s so sad because the families, the colleagues of the people who were in the World Trade Center didn`t give up," Bennett said. "They kept trying to call, and call, and call again with just a glimmer of hope that somehow perhaps the people were still buried underneath the rubble or had perhaps been taken to a hospital. It was very emotional for the rescue workers because they could hear the cell phones ringing."

Pictures of the 19 hijackers are also on display along with some of their passports. A seating plan for one of the flights shows where leader Mohamed Atta and his co-conspirators were sitting, and a letter all the hijackers left behind is included. The five-page martyrdom message was written in Arabic. A translation of the first page is shown and begins with the chilling words: "The Last Night: 1) Embrace the will to die and renew allegiance."
