Hello D Fazio in Colorado. I can help you reach Joe Zito's family in New Jersey. Please email me at bouwerieboy@gmail.com – MIchael Hirsch, New York City   2 Aug 2010

It is so very sad to think that a man who was a "hero" in this tragic event wound up being buried in Potter's Field in NJ. Had it not been for the Masons, I do not know what his Family would have done. Joseph Zito was my maternal great-grandfather. I would love to hear from relatives in NJ, as I am trying to compile our family genealogy. – D. Fazio, Colorado   31 Jul 2010

Thank you for your insite into this tragedy. – Frank S. March, New City, NY   19 May 2010

I made my annual pilgrimage to the site in February and hope to be present on the 100th anniversary. A tragedy for so many and a turning point for organized labor in the US. Sadly, many more workers would die from poor working conditions before major changes would take place. – DavidFW, Elkin, NC   16 May 2010

I think it is extremely lucky that more people survived the fire than died in it. In so many catastrophes, more people die than survive. I read a book called Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix, and I found it to be quite sad, but very informative and true. She found much of her information on this website, and she also found it to be one of the most valid. I find the fire very sad, though I had never heard of it before. Strange that so many disasters can be forgotten so quickly. I wish people would pay the poor people who died in the fire the consideration they deserve. – Shai Palmer, Bethel, VT   14 May 2010

Strange that so few people of wide political conciousness haven't ever heard of this major tragedy. It struck me paralysed, reading through an entire night! – Rolf Liljeblad, Sweden   13 May 2010

Joseph Zito-the gentleman pictured in the bottom right- hand corner on the "home" page-was my maternal great grandfather. – JFV, NJ   18 Apr 2010

We owe it to ourselves to make sure that greed does not cause such devestation in the future. – R. Do, CA   14 Apr 2010

I wondered from which town in the Italian workers are? I wonder if this story has been passed on to the relatives of the deceased in Italy? – Anthony Alioto, San Francisco   13 Apr 2010

Hello I am 11 years old and this was interasting to me.I think it was very bad that it happened but it is good too because it brings people together. – Michaela, Harolton PA   29 Mar 2010

Yesterday was the 99th anniversary of this horrific fire. I'm in the process of putting together a committee for a local commemoration of the 100th anniversary next year. Websites like this one remind us of why we need to learn about labor history so that we see the necessity of enacting policies to protect today's workers from workplace hazards. – AL, Chicago   26 Mar 2010

This is a very informative website. Thank you for a great resource. – NB, Iowa   21 Mar 2010

I just finished reading the book Uprising, by Margaret Haddix. Everyone should read this book. It tells the story of the women who lived and died during this tradgedy trying to make it better for all women. I highly reccomend reading this book and passing it all women. It made me want to find out more about Triangle and the tragic event. I was not aware of this story before, but I will never forget and pass it along to everyone I know. Please do the same, so that these women will live on forever and that their heroic deaths were not in vain. Thank you to all the Traingle Shirtwaist workers you were all so brave. – MER, South Jersey   20 Mar 2010

I was never aware of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory and all the suffarage that women and immigrants faced when they came to America looking for opportunity. I am so glad to finally know the truth about what had happend in 1911. I will make sure my daughters learn about this as well and we will never forget all of those brave women and men who gave their lives for equal rights for women and better working conditions in factories. Thank you fo r making this available for all to see. – Mary Phelps, Orlando, Florida   20 Mar 2010
