University Community Encouraged to Share Pan Am 103 Reflections
As the 25th anniversary of the bombing of Pan Am 103 approaches, members of the Syracuse University community are invited to share their reflections on the tragedy.
“Telling the Stories: The Pan Am 103 Story Archive Project” is an attempt to gather oral histories from those who have firsthand knowledge of Pan Am Flight 103, those who have experienced the impact of the tragedy over the years and those who draw lessons from it. Faculty, staff and students, alumni, former Remembrance and Lockerbie Scholars and family and friends of the victims are encouraged to participate.
The Pan Am 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives and the Pan Am 103 25th Anniversary Commemoration Committee, with Syracuse Symposium 2013: Listening, are sponsoring the project.
The oral histories collected will become a part of the Pan Am 103/Lockerbie Air Disaster Archives, a center located in Bird Library that is dedicated to research and scholarship on the tragedy and to remembering the 270 victims.
The collection of oral histories will be done during Remembrance Week, Monday, Oct. 7, through Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. An appointment is required. For more information or to make an appointment, call 315-443-0632 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
