The Siller Family started the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen, a New York City firefighters (FDNY) who lost his life on Sept. 11, 2001 after strapping on his gear and running through the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel to the Twin Towers.
In 2013, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation created a mobile exhibit as a tribute to all those whose lives were sacrificed on Sept. 11, 2001. The 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit is a tool to educate America’s youth about the historic events of that day. Welcomed around the country, from communities in Phoenix, Arizona to Tampa, Florida, the 9/11 NEVER FORGET Mobile Exhibit – a high-tech, 53-foot tractor- trailer, which unfolds into a 1,000 square foot exhibit, serves as a poignant reminder of that tragic day.
The memorial provides interactive education; including artifacts such as steel beams from the towers, documentary videos, recordings of first responder radio transmissions and live tours by FDNY -firefighters. Entrance into the exhibit is always free of charge.
