Witnesses to Terror
Notre Dame and the attacks of September 11, 2001
The tragedy of September 11, 2001, lives forever in the national memory. The events of that day left an indelible imprint on Notre Dame’s institutional memory as well. From the initial shock of watching the events unfold, to the fear and uncertainty that gave way to common resolve and solidarity, here is how the University experienced 9/11 and its aftermath.
The University of Notre Dame marked the 20th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the United States in several ways Saturday (Sept. 11), including a prayer service on the South Quad.
