Meme-ory to His-story

How history goes from memory to recorded fact is an interesting process. We may be witnessing this in the oral histories of the World Trade Center attacks. From the New York Times:

"more than 12,000 pages of oral histories rendered in the voices of 503 firefighters, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians, will be made public today."

Some are available online here.
