The WTC Grogger created by Micah Roufa which incorporated steel recovered from the World Trade Center after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, was accepted into the National September 11 Memorial Museum on October 19, 2010. Below is an excerpt from the acceptance e-mail from the Collections Registrar:
It is with great pleasure and admiration for this most special ritual object that Jan Ramirez, Director of Collections and Chief Curator, and I inform you that the Purim Grogger has been accepted into the Collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum. We are so grateful that you approached Alice Greenwald about this object, Ms. Fishman; and most admiring of Micah Roufa’s creativity in forming the object and of the concept behind the exhibition for which it was the centerpiece.
Please know how delighted we are to receive this wonderful piece into the Collection.— Amy McEwen
