I first learned about this terrible fire in firefighting school in 1967 and the images have haunted me to this day. This site is not only informational but serves as a tribute to those who died and those who tried in vain to save their lives. – DFW, Elkin, NC   16 Nov 2008

I'm so proud being a 16 yr old girl in America and to have the oppurtunity that these poor girls did not have. As horrifying as it sounds, their deaths helped many generations of young women working now to have a safer work enviroment and better conditions in the work place. R.I.P. Ladies, thank you. For everything. – andrea, kentucky   15 Nov 2008

i had to read this book in my us history class and it shines a new light on what life was like for the characters of this book. it changes the way you look at the idea of these factories ad sweatshops! – emily, st augusting   6 Nov 2008

This web site was really helpful.I liked it a lot. From this website I learned a lot about this event. What those people went through at that time was very horrible and just reading about it almost made me cry. I recommend this web site for anyone who wants to learn about this event. – C.P., NY   6 Nov 2008

Mind bottling! Is there any American history that doesn't start with exploitation and human suffering? May we continue to progress and not regress. – NMP, Houston TX   26 Oct 2008

it was so depresing – mg, austine,texus   13 Oct 2008

This website was very informative for our class trial. Before this project, I really did not know about what had happened, besides a book I read in fifth grade because it was on the rebecca caudill list. It should really be included in our curiculum. My heart goes out to the families, victims, and survivors of the fire. – Marigrace, Illinois   9 Oct 2008

hi i am a eight grade student. I was really fascinated by this topic. This is one of the largest tragedies that has ever happened. It is sad to see that so many people died because of harris and blanck. why were they spared despite the fact that the liveswere gone because of them. I was really sad. – angkur, woodside, new york   30 Sep 2008

OMG THIS IS BAD I HOPE EVERYONE THAT LOST THEIR LIFE RIP – DEE~DEE, ATLANTA GORGIA   22 Sep 2008

this is one of the hardes things that i have ever herd about... the sad part is i would have never even herd about it if a class at shcool never talk about it may they all rest in peace..my heart goes out – kaitlyn, Vancouver, Canada   20 Sep 2008

I just finished reading a book about the fire called Uprising by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I saw this website in her bibliography and I just wanted to know some more information. This site is very helpful. – SF, Arkansas   15 Sep 2008

I have read two excellent books about this fire and also one about the fire on board the General Slocum in New York in 1904. Unlike 9/11, there was no malice or actual wish to harm anyone in those two tragedies, but the result was the same. Locked exits and a joke of a fire escape at the Triangle and rotten hoses and life jackets on the Slocum. And even today there are school districts that are required to meet only the fire standards that were in effect at the time the schools were built and not what the current standards are. Please God the day will come when human life is worth more than the bottom line. – Cheryl, Shiloh, IL   13 Sep 2008

I hope they are in peace. – Maria Robles, CA   11 Sep 2008

nice site – mm, michigan   10 Sep 2008

I just read 2 books and went to visit the site. What a shame. I worked in the WTC on 9/11 and in 90 years it's like not much changed especially with greed making people skimp on stairs. My family worked in the needle trades for years. I hope this is never forgotten and I hope on the 100th anniversary there is a huge memorial outside the Asch/Brown bldg. Oh ps while I was at the bldg., there was someone telling a class about the fire so hopefully these poor people did not die in vain. – Elena, Staten Island   3 Sep 2008

that is 1 big tragedy – curtis wilson, Delhi,Iowa   27 Aug 2008

I have recently read an incredible book about this terrible time in our history. How I applaud those women, and men, who have fought for reform in the factories and shops in our country that employ workers under less than bearable style. God bless you and thank you for your bravery and sacrifices. God bless the men and women who died in the Triangle fire. – Joanna Backman, Bloomington MN   22 Aug 2008

Thank you for illustrating corporate greed unrestrained by laws. America's collective conscious owes more than it can remember to organized labor. – pt, Michigan   28 May 2008

Hey Yesenia! I DID notice the 911 in the Fire's date. – Sydney, Maine   28 May 2008

I saw this tradegy on TV today 27/05/2008 for the first time. It broke the hearts of my wife and myself. The owners needed stringing up. Such young people, and treated so badly. It really affected us. A long time ago yes, but we hope that these souls will get the trama ran out in another life (only Scientology can do that). – Mr Kim Andrews, England   27 May 2008

did any one else notice 911??? – Yesenia Hernandez, Meriden Ct.   27 May 2008

This website was really helpful to help me understand how dangerous sweatshops were and are today. The documents written by the victims were veryhelpful However, I think it would be better to show more pictures. – Rosie Marsland, NZ   27 May 2008
