Misspelled victim's name on 9/11 memorial to be fixed this week



The unfortunate misspelling of a victim’s name at the 9/11 Memorial is expected to be fixed this week.

Opening day of the World Trade Center tribute was marred when relatives of the Cantor Fitzgerald employee Jeffrey H. Schreier realized that the “r” and “e” in his first name were transposed.

The error was particularly upsetting to Schreier’s family, according to reports, because his remains were never identified, and because they had also lost family members in the Holocaust who were likewise never recovered.
