Remembering the Triangle Factory Fire, 100 years later

Visitor Guestbook

What our visitors are saying...

Tragedies such as the Triangle Factory are too often forgotten as was the case of the Station Nightclub in Rhode Island which claimed 100 lives on Feb. 20 2003. Again people became trapped due to inadequate exits and the lack of a fire sprinkler system. Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it. – John D, Fire Inspector, NJ   9 Jun 2005

I've noticed that a lot of the people commenting here have read "Ashes of Roses", and I've just finished it as well. This book is a VERY good book. It has inspired me to stand up for my rights, and other people's rights. But, i want to know what happened to Rose Nolan after she moved out of Mr. Garoff's apartment. I hope to see a nother book. I am an 8th grader in Eaton Rapids, and I'm 14 years old. I encourage all young girls to read this book! – Andrea Hatler, Eaton Rapids, Mi   20 May 2005

I have just learned of this tragic event and was completely moved by this website. People should never forget that lives of such young and innocent women and children were lost that day. It really makes you think. – Gail D., Bayside, NY   30 Mar 2005

The devastation caused by such a senseless series of events is absolutely stunning. I was only 11 when I learned of the tragedy in school. The story captivated my attention and heart as it does today, 30 years later. The event still fills my eyes with tears. Those that perished did not die in vain... – Jamie Thomas, , Long Beach CA   26 Mar 2005

Thank you for presenting the story of the continuing exploitation of young,frightened and expectant members of the American labor force. Although most corporations have outsourced these practices to third world countries, still on home soil we find workers in unsafe conditions from unliveable wages to unbreathable air. – Jerry Anderson, Chicago.IL   25 Mar 2005

It was 94 years ago right this moment that this tragedy was taking place. I'm wondering if anybody whose interested in the Triangle Factory made a point in going to the building today in remembrance. I would if I could. Last October I was in New York City for a visit, and went and saw the building. I'm glad the building has a plaque on the outside of it, to tell people that history was changed at that location. – Marty C., Maumee, Ohio   25 Mar 2005

truely tragic – rf, Illinois   25 Mar 2005

The Triangle Factory Fire is a vivid reminder of how greed can rule peoples better judgement. As I read over the names of the victoms of the fire, I started to remember the similarities between the fire and 911. I felt the same greif when I read over the list of the 911 victoms. Such an unneccessary loss of life. We must never forget those whose perished in the fire. Thank you for creating this informative web site. – A. West, Spinnerstown, PA   25 Mar 2005

Today's remembrance of the tragic Triangle Fire must be not be forgotten. The inhumanity of what happen 84 years ago and the horrific way the victims died should always be remembred and never forgotten. My prayers are with them today. – SLT, Sacramento, CA   25 Mar 2005

In response to Toby Bey--We make every effort to update the online bibliography as we become aware of new resources and welcome suggestions for inclusion. – Kheel Center staff,   25 Mar 2005
