    The town of Greenwich is being exclusive when it comes to putting victims' names on a 9/11 memorial.

    The public will soon have the opportunity to listen to a rare collection of 9/11 oral histories, with a collection of recordings and a rotating exhibit of artifacts to be unveiled today.

    The exhibit will feature a listening station at the 9/11 Memorial Preview Site in Manhattan.

    Many of the audio recordings and items will become part of the 9/11 Memorial & Museum, which is under construction.

    The public will be able to hear intimate accounts of how Sept. 11, 2001 and its aftermath were experienced. The accounts will be paired with materials that support the stories.

    Among the items to be included is an auto-racing jacket cherished by 9/11 victim Karen Juday and donated by her fiance. He contributed an oral history.
