Dedicated to:

Remembering the victims of September 11th and the 1993 bombings of the WTC


"A monument designed by a Russian Artist Zurab Tsereteli to commemorate victims of the September 11 attacks will serve as a symbol of Russian-American unity against the threat of terrorism\", Russian President Vladimir Putin said on September 15, 2005 during a ceremonial groundbreaking for the monument.

In the city of Bayonne (New Jersey, United States) on the fifth anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks there was a dedication ceremony of Tsereteli’s 175-ton sculpture entitled “To the Struggle Against World Terrorism” consisting of a 100-foot tall rectangular bronze block with a fissure down the middle creating the tension and drama of the sculptural image, in which a teardrop in memory of those whose lives were lost is suspended. Nine pathways lead to the 11-sided granite base where names of 9/11 victims as well as victims of the 1993 World Trade Center bombings are engraved.
