Eleven years ago, on september 11th 2001, at the infographic department of the Algemeen Dagblad, we were staring at tv screens, trying to get a grip of what was happening overseas. Any newsroom in the world was a frantic place at that very moment, as infographic journalists were trying to reconstruct the events visually.
But amidst the chaos, any information was in contradiction of previous reports. While dozens of cameras were registring the collapse of the Twin Towers, we were asking ourselves so many questions: how many planes were involved? Which tower was hit first? With great care Thijs Unger, Ramses Reijerman and Frédérik Ruys made this infographic.
