18 Years Later, Part 6: 9/11 Through the Eyes of Shomrim Volunteers

Amid the chaos and panic following the airliners slamming into the two World Trade Center towers on September 11, 2001, many men and woman answered a higher calling – instead of running away, they turned and ran towards the burning buildings in desperate attempts to rescue those trapped in the burning inferno. Among those brave men was a band of Shomrim volunteers from Crown Heights.

Among those who participated in the rescue effort were: Gadi HershkopLelly HershkopShloime FisherShloime KleinMendy BreierBoruch Marmulszteyn and Zevi Laine.

These photos were taken over the course of the first two nights following the terror attacks, which claimed nearly 3,000 lives, and depict the carnage through the eyes of those who rushed in after the buildings came down.
