My Maternal Grandmother Delores Immacolata Penza worked as an embroider in the Traingle Shirtwaist Factory. My Grandmother burnt her hand very badly while ironing a blouse she was going to wear to work and was spared from certain death since she could not go to work that day. – Joseph Seneca, Orange,New Jersey   18 Mar 2005

Thank you so much for this beautifully presented site. My students will be visiting it next term.

On International Women's Day, I went to the site to review it's history. There was a line about the Triangle Disaster. Curiosity brought me to this site. I went through all the emotions and as a native New Yorker I felt deeply for the victims and their families. I salute the University for their research and presentation. I especially appreciate being able to listen to the audio of the survivors' account of that fateful day. It gave me a real connection to these courageous people. Thank you. – Tina, New Jersey   9 Mar 2005

I feel bad for the people who died in the Triangle Factory Fire. – Julberte Armand, New York   20 Feb 2005

I just finished reading a book called "Ashes of Roses", the main character was an employee at the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory. She survived, although her three best friends parished in the fire. Two of them jumped to their death, and one attempted to save an elderly italian woman and was burned. Her father had to identify her at the morgue near the pier. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in reading about the life of a Triangle Factory survivor. This is probably my most favorite book. – Abby Jessen, Wyandotte, MI   18 Feb 2005

I'm just learning about this in social studies. This is a very sad site. – Katelynd DuBois, New York   9 Feb 2005

I was researching the fire as it is often referred to as a pivotal occurrence that lead to the creation of International Women's Day - a day that is marked around the world-except in the US. I am du e to give a speech here and the Brazilian referrences say that the fire was set on purpose to punish striking girls. Some of the local sources say that police locked the girls in and burned them alive. This has, therefore been an invaluable tool to setting the record straight. I thank you for the wonderful organization and display. – DCH, Brasília Brazil   9 Feb 2005

is a very good website – L.G, Florida   9 Feb 2005

I never thought that a business could be so cruel to its employees. I can't believe that the victims families only got $75! That may have been a lot then, but I know someone couldn't have lived on $75. That is just cruel and unusual. – NMT, Madagascar   8 Feb 2005

Thank you for this site. I was an undergraduate at NYU and a plaque on the wall is how I learned of the Triangle fire. Going to classes in the Brown building (as it is now called)was always distressing. I am proud that the archives are held at my other alma mater, Cornell. I was deeply impressed by Von Drehle's book, which is how I found this website. Again, thank you for a comprehensive, instructive, and deeply moving website. – Margaret Russell, LIttleton, MA   30 Jan 2005
