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. Vincent Muscarella. – vincenzo muscarella, cerda- palermo   21 Sep 2015

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

terrifying – rg, nh   18 Jun 2015

I cannot believe what I have found here!! My Great Aunt was finally identified! Josephine Cammarata! My grandfather came over from Italy looking for his sister after they lost contact with her in April 1911. At 1st they thought she got cold feet about getting married, & was hiding somewhere. After about 6 months, they came over to look for her. Since my Grandfather's name was misspelled at Ellis Island, & my Great aunts was spelled the correct way, he never found her. I have now! I bought several books about the fire, so I can see the terrible work conditions my Great Aunt had to work in. The picture you have of her is uncanny! It's like I'm looking at the female version of my Grandfather. Thank you so much for finding her!! – Julia, New Jersey   17 Jun 2015

I was sad to see so many kids that died. – mike, virginia   11 Jun 2015

this was a tragedy that certainly could have been avoided – michael gregory giles, virginia beach va   11 Jun 2015

This tragedy is truly saddening. After I read this, I felt disheartened towards society. I believe that more people should be enlightened as to what used to happen, in order to genuinely appreciate what they have now.I will always keep the touching stories in mind. – E.L., C.C., Vancouver, B.C.   28 May 2015

very interesting. horrible story. – jlg, nc   12 May 2015

Why has no one researched the corruption that enabled factory owners, Isaac Harris and Max Blanck, to get off with NO penalty at ALL despite forcing their employees to work in inhumane conditions, in a vertical death trap, behind LOCKED DOORS? Some politicians and judges palms were no doubt greased. New York, and the heirs of Blanck and Harris, owe substantial reparations to the descendants of these bereaved families who were so disgracefully treated. – ELW, Ontario   6 May 2015

This was a devastating event but an important one i'm glad people are still to this day learning about it. The only way to improve is to remember your mistakes. – CFP, Topeka, Kansas   30 Apr 2015

It is not lost on me that I am able to enjoy, vacation time, paid days off, sick pay, the Family Medical Care Act, and the fact my children attend school and do not have to work to support our family as these victims did. It is sad to have lost them but what came out of this tragedy, paved the way for many to dare dream. – DAF, Goffstown New Hampshire   27 Apr 2015
