Lithograph print titled Never Forget, created by Brenda Berkman (b. 1951). The print depicts a woman firefighter looking across the street at the One World Trade Center building and the 9/11 Memorial under construction. Tourists are crowding around the "Ten House Bravest Memorial" wall outside of the FDNY Engine 10/Ladder 10 firehouse. The tourists are focused on the representations of firefighters on the wall and do not see the woman firefighter. The print is signed.
This print is part of a series titled 36 Views of One World Trade Center, created by 9/11 first responder and FDNY member Brenda Berkman as she documented the construction of the new One World Trade Center building from 36 vantage points around the city. For Berkman, printmaking became a path through the trauma she had experienced on 9/11 and in the subsequent months that she spent at Ground Zero.
