More Than 600 Survived

More than 600 survived the blast – and were forever scarred by what happened that day. Many faced years of healing and rehabilitation. Many suffered then and now from survivor guilt.

Many still serve the Memorial and Museum today – offering their insights and feelings on the direction the institution should take. And they all serve as an example of fortitude, strength and resilience.

In the Outdoor Symbolic Memorial, the Survivor Wall memorializes each survivor with their name etched in granite slabs salvaged from the Federal Building.
