A 9/11 Memorial bookmark

Offered for sale at the 9/11 Memorial Museum Store (along with a wide variety of other items).  Some people are questioning the appropriateness of such souvenirs.  An artile at The Guardian compares these to souvenirs that can also be purchased at the Auschwitz-Birkenau official online website, the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum, and other similar locales.


  1. At the risk of offending quite a few people who lack a sense of humour:

    "The fact that the new 9/11 Museum sells tacky merchandise is triumphant proof that the terrorists failed to change the American way of life." - @TheTweetOfGod

  2. I think bookmarks are an appropriate souvenir for these kinds of things. At the end of the day, they are usually closed in within books or placed in drawers, and left in quiet peace, rather than hung on open walls or worn on t-shirts.
