The World Trade Center was a complex of different buildings in Lower Manhattan, New York. When it was opened in 1973 it was the tallest building of the world and shaped the skyline significantly. The two tallest buildings were called the Twin Towers and were a popular background for many American and international movies. On the 11th of September 2001 the World Trade Center was destroyed by Islamists that flew into the towers and killed many people with their act of terror. In 2013 the new World Trade Center was opened and should symbolize hope and resistance against terrorism.
