terrible day in history – djs, mn   26 Oct 2015

Thank you for such a fantastic resource. I've been intrigued with this story since I saw a documentary on the fire. May we never forget what happened on that terrible day. I shudder to think what is happening now in other countries where US manufacturers have outsourced their production. It seems to me we've just shifted the problem to poorer nations where poor people can be exploited. Greed is still alive and well! – J.J., Colorado   22 Oct 2015

Great accumulation of articles. It is hard to believe humans could treat each other this way. It took laws to protect workers lives? Greed is a powerful. The irony of "911" fire and this fire in "1911" is unbelievable. – L. Davis, Trophy Club, TX   20 Oct 2015

My name is Vincent Muscarella, Cerda are you are interested in receiving news of three girls died in the fire at the Triangle: Del Castillo Giuseppina, Salemi Santina, Cirrito Rosina born in Cerda. I'd love to know what happened to the mothers and fathers and sisters and brothers of possible descendants. My interest stems from the fact that I decided to write about the lives of their mothers; their conditions of migrant mothers and why and how they came to New York. If any of the descendants or anyone had a chance to give me the news will email me at my email address:vincenzo_muscarella@fastw - By thanking Remembering for the opportunity they gave me, I send a cordial greeting to the entire editorial staff.

to @Julia, New Jersey 17 Jun 2015 hello Julia, I've been involved in a project to honour the victims of the fire who were born in Sicily, most of them -24- have already been recognised and many have a place or a plaque dedicated in their hometown. I think your great aunt was one of them, but my research is not getting me very far. Could you please let me know where your grandfather's family was from? best wishes – rosa anna, sicilia ITA   18 Aug 2015
