I need information – sandra mcguigan, San Antonio   28 Nov 2005

I read the book Ashes of Roses and it really touched my heart. I can't believe something this horrific could happen in the lives of so many young people. I know it happened long ago, but I think that people should remember what happened, because it was another stepping stone to the worker's rights in America. God Bless! – Marceil Palmer, Myrtle Beach, SC   24 Nov 2005

As the great-granddaughter of Chief Croker, I grew up with this story and have long appreciated the reforms which resulted from this tragedy. It is good to see so many people, especially students, who are still learning about this event and its effects on our lives to this day. – Susan Croker Fisher, Madison Hts, VA   16 Nov 2005

id like to see more pictures – kc, va   15 Nov 2005

My great aunt and her cousin were in this fire. My aunt alone survived. I thoroughly enjoyed this site. I just finished reading David von Drehle's wonderful book Triangle: The Fire That Changed AMerica. He did a brilliant job of showing the whole background of the time (politically, socially, legally, etc) in an easy to read manner. I found this site because of his book. My great aunt is listed here as a survivor (Tessa Benanti) but her cousin Vincenza Benanti was a victim. This is a remarkable memorial to all those who died. – Jan, NY   14 Nov 2005

I study OH&S at Ryerson University and I was appalled at what I researched for this tragedy! What a terrible way to go for so many young women. – Kim.M, Toronto,Canada   13 Nov 2005

I learned about this fire in US history 2 class i was interested in it because it was a horrible tragedy and i think it was horrible of them to lock the doors on those poor workers a lot of lives could have been saved if only they would have had fire drills or even kept the doors unlocked... – JAM, Wisconsin   13 Nov 2005

I really liked the site and in reading the story I got chills because I could only imagine what was going through their minds since I went throught the most harrowing moment in my life when I was involved in the 9/11 incident that hit New York...what was worse was seeing people throw themselves out the windows because their was no escape and worst to see the buildings come down. I didn't even know about this incident. I don't remember studying this in school. Of course I am 58 years old and I was helping my daughter with her project. – Gladys Perez, Brooklyn, NY   5 Nov 2005

I appreciate how the site provides a wonderful tribute to those who were lost in fire, but it was hard for me to find anything about the conditions of the workers at the Triangle Shirtwaist company before the fire. – KT, Sacramento, CA   30 Oct 2005

i have to do a project of the fire tyhat happend on 1911 of the tringle factory – Nataly, New York   28 Oct 2005

This web site made me feel like was there! I could almost see the flames and smell the smoke! I can't even imagine what it must have been like. I hope I never have to make a choice either to jump or burn . . . when we move in and out of our (supposedly) safe modern office buildings, we must always remember this fire and those who died. It's a pity 146 people had to die so we could be safe almost a century later! – Susan M., Lincoln, NE   26 Oct 2005

To those interested in films about the Triangle Fire. The Triangle Factory Fire Scandal, produced in 1978 by Alan Landsburg Productions, is 98 minutes long and was re-released by U.S.A. Home Video in 1985. As far as I have been able to determine it is no longer available for sale, and the company is no longer in business. More information about the video can be found at While the Kheel Center does have a copy of the film which is available for viewing by appointment, copyright compliance prohibits us from duplicating it. Other film available in the Kheel Center which cover the Triangle Factor fire at least in part include the 1950 theatrical film by the ILGWU With These Hands; the Ric Burns, New York A documentary film released in 1999, and the History Channel produced Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire, This Week in History Episode #33, aired in 2001. – Kheel Center staff,   24 Oct 2005

Bless whoever came up with this site. a horrible horrible case, you are good people to let the world have more information/pictures about this disaster, hopefully we all learn from this. Great site once again. – JB, United States   22 Oct 2005

Be ever so thankful for the times you were born & raised and grateful to those who came before to make it this way. Say thank-you, ever day of your life! – Sandra, Toronto, Canada   21 Oct 2005
