Journalists Memorial

Permanent | Level 3

Journalists Memorial Gallery

The soaring, two-story glass memorial bears the names of 2,344 reporters, editors, photographers and broadcasters who lost their lives reporting the news. The gallery also features photographs of hundreds of the journalists whose names are etched on the memorial’s glass panels, as well as kiosks where information on every journalist on the memorial can be accessed. Each year, the Newseum selects a representative group of journalists whose names are added to the memorial and whose deaths illustrate the dangers faced by journalists around the world.

Other organizations that share this mission include, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Reporters Without Borders, Freedom House and the International Press Institute.
