The Journalists Memorial

The Journalism museum, the Newseum, and Google have joined forces to launch the Journalists Memorial channel, described as 'A Tribute to Journalists Who Have Died Pursuing the Truth.' The Journalists Memorial pays tribute to reporters, photographers, broadcasters and news executives who have died reporting the news.

The names of 2,084 journalists from around the world are etched on the glass panels of the soaring, two-story structure. The Journalist Memorial is rededicated each year to add the names of journalists who lost their lives in the preceding year. Adjoining the memorial are photographs of hundreds of those journalists; electronic kiosks contain information on every honored journalist.
