The Invisible Girl (Documentary Repeat)
Amid the reconstruction and the office workers who crowd into New York's financial district daily, there are more than 45,000 people who call Lower Manhattan home. They buy their groceries there. Raise their kids there. There are more than 20 elementary and middle schools in the neighbourhood.
Think about that ... 10 years ago the schools were all in session on 9/11. All those kids had to clear out of class. Think about what they saw. Few thought about those children at the time. Even fewer thought about them later. In a sense, they were all invisible.
Helaina Hovitz was just a schoolgirl when the jets brought down the towers. This morning, we are re-broadcasting Anna Maria Tremonti's story about Helaina called, The Invisible Girl. It first ran in September and was also produced by CBC's Heather Barrett.
