Good site but very tragic! – Nicholas Anderson, Wake Forest, NC   23 Jan 2012

Its so tragic when you realize how workers were treated back then. I am sure there was no compensation given to the families that lost loved ones. Thankfully, we have come a long way from 1911. – JM, berryville, va   23 Jan 2012

I think this was very tragic. But I think it was all because of the owners that many innocent people had to die. If the doors and windows would have been unlocked not everyone would have died. It is so sad that young girls that didnt even have the chance to live their lives died. – Samantha , California   20 Jan 2012

My social studies teacher had us do a project on this and when I read the victim's list, I felt so horrible because it could have been me in that fire if I had been born a hundred or so years earlier because I'm Jewish and part Italian. And I'm about the right age, so this really hits close to home for me because my ancestors struggled in similiar sweatshops when they first came to the U.S. – Bree, Arizona   19 Jan 2012

Hi Lindsay, Frances Jensen wrote a dissertation that discusses the impact of the fire on labor protective legislation and fire codes. The full citation is The Triangle Fire and the Limits of Progressivism. Dissertation, University of Massachusetts at Amherst, 1996. (Also on microfilm: UMI). You should be able to order it through interlibrary loan. Good luck with your project. – Kheel Center staff, Ithaca, NY   18 Jan 2012

My great aunt died in the fire. I can't even remotely picture how my great-grandparents and my grandmother and her siblings lived with this for the remainder of their lives. Although I was well into adulthood when my grandmother passed away, I never discussed the fire because it just was not to be mentioned. I'm sorry that I didn't. – ms, new york   14 Dec 2011
