Ten years on, Children of 9/11 gives a voice, for the first time, to the young people directly affected by 9/11: more than 3,000 children lost a parent on that fateful day and some were not yet born - they were still in the womb when the towers collapsed. Their lives are linked by a terrible accident of fate that has made their childhoods part of the most significant and terrifying event of modern times. Over the course of a year, Children of 9/11 has followed eleven children from six families across America. We'll hear from some who are only just beginning to comprehend what they lost on that day, whilst others, remarkably, are now able to find a way to positively transform their lives. Their honest recollections of this confusing and catastrophic day, as well as their difficult and inspiring journeys in the years since, offer incredible new insight into the far reaching consequences of September 11th.
