Thank you so much for the information. Our class is doing a national history day and the info has been a huge help. Thank You! – Emily , California   7 Dec 2011

It's a shame, really. Common decency and respect for humanity should have been acted upon before an incident like this could have taken place. Blocking fire escapes and exits? Anyone could figure out that that was a bad idea. This is an excellent resource for learning the saddening details of the fire and how it could definitely have been prevented. Thank you so much for the work put into this. [I am using the information here for a project in a US history course.] ? – Raine, Greenville, SC   7 Dec 2011

I read the book ashes of roses and it is about this fire. I find it wrong to have had all those desks and bunch up like that. It is a shame that they didn't catch the owners and change it befor hand. – Kss, Williamsburg va   21 Nov 2011

Wow I can't believe that 146lives were lost the triangle sucks why did they lock them in ? – Rushforth breanna, Williamsburg va   21 Nov 2011

This was the first website Google gave me when I searched this topic for a report. I've already got 4 good primary sources! May everyone involved in this fire rest in peace, and may it never happen again... – Andie, Ohio   21 Nov 2011

As an architect, disasters such as this must always be in our minds as we argue with clients about the "expense" of fire safety. A study of the history of fires such as this, "The Station" nightclub fire comes immediately to mind, stresses every day that we, the designers of buildings, must incorporate the latest safety features, ALWAYS. God bless those poor women who perished in this awful conflagration. – Steven A. Sigmund, Warren, PA   21 Nov 2011

i would be surprized if they tore that place down, that place was hell! – KH, milford,pa   18 Nov 2011

The first I had heard about this tragedy was in a social studies class where I work. I was very intrigued by the story and couldn't wait to get to this website. I was truly moved by the story of these young people!! So many young lives lost at the carelessness of others. My daughter, who is 14, enjoys reading about history and was moved to tears by this story, it makes her want to help others even that much more. – Kellie Ruble, Jefferson City, MO   4 Nov 2011

Wow great website this is the best source ever for my history day project. –   4 Nov 2011

Tragic story. – Everett T., Lincoln Nebraska   3 Nov 2011

This is an amazing research tool. Thanks you for all the work that you put into establishing this website. It's heartbreaking to see what these girls ha d to suffer through, and to know that nobody suffered any consequences is absolutely repulsive. – Kelsey Callaghan, New York, NY   2 Nov 2011

It really makes you wonder... they were aquitted of the charges, including the locking of the doors, only for Max Blanck to repeat the same thing by locking the doors in another factory. How could that be "a model of cleanliness and sanitary conditions" when there were scraps all over the floor and the places were cramped? And if that place is "Second to none in the country" I would hate to see the last in place! – Reah Walker, Saskatchewan   1 Nov 2011

What a sad website. Just learned this in history class and had to do an assignment about the website. Learned some very sad things! Great website! – Lennon , Barnesville, Minnesota   31 Oct 2011

Looking at this website has truely given me the facts that I was looking for. To see so many yound men and women die is truely sad. Knowing that the oldest person was 43, was the sadest thing I have ever read about. – Pheilisa Clark, Meridian, Ms   27 Oct 2011

Thank God for OSHA What a sad day! – SH, Missouri   27 Oct 2011

this is a really good way to learn about the story of that tragic day. Its very interesting and I feel bad for the people who had to jump out the windows. R.I.P. to them. I want to go there and see if its haunted. cause i don't doubt it isn't. This place was very packed with women and children. Too bad they had to go like this. Well I want to go here some day. – Rikki Marie, California   24 Oct 2011

This site helped me so much! I had to use it for a social studies worksheet and it was probably the more informational! :) Thanks for everything! It also taught me how to appreciate life! 3 :) – Reagan, Florida   23 Oct 2011
