Reading this made me realize that although there are things that go on at work that I don't like, that it could be a lot worse and I'm now more appreciative of the job that I have. – AF, NC   7 Feb 2018

This made me very aware of hope racist and inconsiderate people are when it comes to their businesses back in the day. Especially with people that looked and lived different than we did. They was willing to work in a crappy environment for low pay just to get some type of wage to pay for themselves and their family. Its sad that this whole situation could have been less tragic if people wasn't so racist and inconsiderate of others – CGP, NC   7 Feb 2018

Wonderful work for working class suffering recording and memory.In China we have the same kind of disasters, but we don't have similar website or museum.It really a shame and pity. – liujianzhou, china,shanghai   17 Jan 2018

One of the victims was my grandfather's sister, Fanny Hollander. I would like to know if there is any other information about her that is available. Thank you for having this site. It is an important testimonial to the victims and their families. Most importantly, labor laws changed after this tragedy. – Dana, Israel originally from NY   16 Jan 2018

This is upsetting, sad, unacceptable. My prayers and thoughts go to everyone effected. – Clarissa, McDonough, NY   12 Jan 2018

I work in code enforcement and this tragedy is a reminder of why we enforce regulations to preserve life safety. Hearing the oral history recordings of a few of the survivors was amazing and really helped to make the story personal instead of academic. – CW, Houston, TX   12 Jan 2018

Its really sad that people where jumping out of windows. I wish I was there to save multiple lives and help people out. – jg, winnsboro la   12 Jan 2018

A horrific story.Rest in peace sisters. – Al Iannacone Sr., Originally from Paterson, NJ   25 Dec 2017

I read every single one of the interviews for the survivors; it is very intriguing on how the stories tie in with each other. This was a very sad event in history that could have easily been avoided. I am glad that we can now learn from the past. – Kya Paige Daddy Williams, Choctaw, OK   21 Dec 2017

Its sad to think about how this entire situation could have been completely avoided if the owners had just cared a little more about their workers and their factories. But people have also learned from the past and been able to improve the working environment the workers work in. – Elizabeth, St.Charles IL   18 Dec 2017

It seems like owners and managers back then where greedy. It couldn't hurt to spend a little bit of money to ensure safety... – Justin Sebahar, St. Charles IL.   18 Dec 2017

It's very tragic that this happened, but now we know for the future to take more precaution of safety in buildings with many people. – Ashley Peters, St.Charles IL   18 Dec 2017

For these immigrants moving to a new country must have been hard enough but dealing with this is something else – Shivam G, IL   18 Dec 2017

If i witnessed this and had to go back to work the next day I would be terrified – Meghan, St.Charles IL   18 Dec 2017

A very sad catastrophe that could've been avoided – Sydney Montgomery, St. Charles IL   18 Dec 2017

This is a horrible disaster that occurred in US history. This whole disaster could have been avoided if the founder of companies could take the time and money to keep it's employees safe. – Brooke Sieck, St. Charles, IL   18 Dec 2017

Very informational website. Thank you. – Bradley Filsinger , St. Charles   18 Dec 2017

It is very sad to think that all of this could have been prevented if someone had taken the time and money to put in emergency precautions. – Ainsley O, St. Charles, IL   18 Dec 2017

I believe that this is a terrible disaster that occurred in our history. But because of it people then realized that there needed to be changes to the working environment for peoples safety. – Delani Hudock, St.Charles, IL   18 Dec 2017

If you were in the shoes of one of the immigrants, it would be a scary expierience witnessing people falling to their deaths, having locked doors, and the screams. – Connor, St Charles IL.   18 Dec 2017

I think that this was a horrible thing but that it made everyone aware of what could happen and made everyone more prepared for this if it ever happened again. – Bronwyn Rigbsy, St. Charles, IL   18 Dec 2017

I feel really bad for those people who died and for those who lived for having to deal with that trauma. – Jackson C, St. Charles Illinois   18 Dec 2017

It's scary to think that this is what happens when people are given power and money. They didn't care about how working conditions are, they didn't care if the workers get paid enough for the amount of time they put in, they didn't even think to treat their employees as humans, and when you get to that point where you just don't care about how you treat others because you're "worth so much more than them because you have the power and the money." This all could have easily been avoided if people cared about each other. – L.K, St. Charles Illinois   18 Dec 2017

It was terrifying to think that people had to work in such harsh decisions but then again if the fire didn't happen then we would still be working in a horrible place like they used to. – Jiya, Illinois   15 Dec 2017

Its weird to think about if this happened in the present. – Tru, Illinois   15 Dec 2017

This is very sad. The youngest person that was a victim died at 14. This didn't have been how people realized to change working conditions, it doesn't have to take lives for people – K.M, n/a   15 Dec 2017
