This site has been very helpful for my research as I wrote my novel TRIANGLE, which will be published in June by Farrar, Straus & Giroux. – Katharine Weber, Connecticut   13 Apr 2006

I have read the Dear America book and Ashes of Roses. This tragic story of pain and loss has really touched me. To think of the 146 that died just to feed and support their poor families brings me to tears. I'm glad this site was made in memory of them. Thanx. – Olga, Kansas   13 Apr 2006

Im doing a report on this story and i have just finished a book called Ashes of Roses..it was based on The Triangle Factory Fire and it touched me really hard on how many girls and guys and just people were hit by this.To tell the truth i cryed at the end of my book! – Shaina , CA.   7 Apr 2006

I have been studying the Triangle Fire as an american history major since my sophomore year of college and your site has always been my starting point for great sources. Now in writing my senior thesis I have the oppurtunity to emmerse myself in the wonderful literature and documents that have been made available as more people learn about this tragedy. Thank you for the work you do to keep education on this topic such a priority. Events like the Triangle Fire and even the sinking of the General Slocum are glaring examples of the fact that it was on the packs of the "huddles masses" that America learned and grew and still does. – Leah S., St. George, UT   6 Apr 2006

I am ten and I just finished the book called Ashes of Roses.Just like b.v. in New York this book got me interested because I have never heard of the Triangle Waist Shirt Company fire so I am do a little resaerch myself.In my book it says in the authors note that the day Mary Jane Auch delivered this manuscript to her editor the last survivor of the fire died.It said that her name was Rose Rosenfeld Freedman.It said that she wasn't quite 18 at the time.But she was 107 when she died. – Sydney , Sandusky,Ohio   3 Apr 2006

Its so tragic and very saddening what those women had to endure during those times when not treated fairly and with dignity – kris b., spfld, massachusetts   3 Apr 2006

This is a Very Informative Site Historically, But Believe Me these "HORROR" stories still Exist TODAY! Look for other "Labor" sites, there are many Stories of what goes on behind Closed Doors just as "Miserable". "Don't Mourn, Organize!!!" – Gerry Grimm, Margate, Florica   2 Apr 2006

I love history it is so interesting – S.I, Texas   31 Mar 2006

My Grandmother Violante (Serafini) Cannella was a survivor of this fire. She was an Italian immigrant and seamstress who came to America just after she married my grandfather Salvatore Cannella in 1910. She related the story to her children about how her sister-in-law (Frances Cannella) convinced her to go to work with her at the factory on the day of the fire. They got separated in the confusion but both survived. My grandmother explained that she escaped by jumping down the stairwell and landing on other people before getting outside the building. She was pregnant at the time with her first child, Mary (Cannella) DiRaffaele who was born on 7/11/11 and is still living on Long Island. My grandmother went on to live a long and happy life, raising 8 children, and died at the age of 86 in 1976. – Barbara Fumosa, Scotch Plains, NJ   25 Mar 2006

What a tremendous site! In doing research on the tragedy, I never believed I would find such a comprehensive website. The testimonies and witness accounts bring to light just what a horror it must have been. People beware! The era of the sweatshop is not over - they still exist. – LMM, Euless, TX   21 Mar 2006

I am studying the triangle factory fire in school – rqg, brooklyn, NY   21 Mar 2006

I am a high school theater teacher, and we are presenting the new play, THE TRIANGLE FACTORY FIRE PROJECT, by Christopher Piehler and Scott Evans. It's an incredible, moving docu-drama about the tragedy and following trial. Anybody doing research will certainly appreciate your INCREDIBLE website, as well as this play. Thank you for having the most extensive informaton on your research I have found thus far. – Brook, Orange, Texas   14 Mar 2006

Excellent website. The people who survived the tragedy never could dream that their experience would be told and retold to concerned people, literally around the globe, in a medium like the internet. Their sacrifice was not in vain and women, workers and all people been saved from a similiar ordeal in America. The story should be shared with people in the dark corners of the world where powerless people are exploited. – Rob, New York, NY   11 Mar 2006

This is the first time I have ever heard of this story and think its a terrible way to learn that workers need equal opportunities too. I think its crazy that the owners not get more punishment. – Amanda Blalock, valdosta,ga   9 Mar 2006

I am currently studying the tragedy and found this site helpful.Also, I found the morgue pictures quite gruesome. – B.M., MI   9 Mar 2006
