Its outrageous how they treated their workers back then, bad pay, long hours and extremely unsafe, thankfully this tragic event caused great outcomes for all(most) workers – CK, IL   11 Dec 2015

May all the people who had passed in the fire rest in peace – AS, IL   11 Dec 2015

This was very interesting to read about. It was a terrible event that never should have happened, at least something good came out of it though. – ML, IL   11 Dec 2015

Terrible – RB, IL   11 Dec 2015

I have learned about this before, and know knowing about all of the safety regulations we have today, this is really hard to believe what happened. – JH, IL   11 Dec 2015

This was very interesting to read about. I can't imagine having to go through that experience. I have heard of the fire before reading this but I didn't know much about it. I'm very glad that I was educated about this topic and this date should never be forgotten. So many lives could have been saved if they just wouldn't have locked the doors. I wonder if things would have gone a lot differently if they wouldn't have paid them minimum wage or didn't make them work 12-18 hours a week. RIP to all 146 victims. – Alex D., St. Charles, Illinois   11 Dec 2015

I'm glad they changed all the laws to try and prevent this from happening. It's very tragic – Bella, St. Charles Illinois   11 Dec 2015

It's a tragic event that shouldn't be forgotten. This event made the U.S. realize that we need safer working conditions. It's an event that should be respected, not only for the loss of lives, but for the impact it had on U.S. Industry. – DK, IL   11 Dec 2015

Very interesting to read about, but very, very sad to see the pictures and what happened to the victims and their families/ friends. – AL, IL   11 Dec 2015

Not right man – EB, St Charles illinois   11 Dec 2015

This event is something that should never be forgotten. I am sorry to all who lost their lives in the fire, and I am sorry to those who lost loved ones in this fire. But we did learn from this event, like we do with all events like these. Improvements were made to factories and city's' fire departments to help make sure this fire never happens again. Thank you to the historians who created this site to inform us on the wrongdoings of our country back in 1911. – CM, IL   11 Dec 2015

This is a hard topic to believe. Especially when you don't have proof like this. Thank you to the historians who created this website and the people who created testimonials for letting us see the true story over the test of time. – HM, IL   11 Dec 2015

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
