Reactions to the bombing in Oklahoma City took many forms, and this portion of the exhibit examines the ways that people coped with and tried to understand the tragedy on April 19, 1995. Here you will find examples of the response from the mass media struggling to make sense of the event, from individuals moved by the plight of others, and from children trying to grasp what has happened. This collection also chronicles the ways that the event has been commemorated, with pictures and stories from the anniversary events held over the years.
The Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum offers a more complete picture of the bombing and the human response that came out of it. Please visit the Memorial & Museum to learn more.
