I just finished reading "Ashes of Roses" and wanted to learn more about the Triangle Fire. This site is invaluable for an understanding of the true horror and magnitude of this tragedy. – Joanne Fleming, New York   18 Jan 2005

It saddens me that all of these young women and men were so horriblely taken from this world and no one was held accountable. Such numbers should be considered sufficient enough to be held accountable to the owners for failure to help all the others and not just save their skins....it's a shame. God rest their souls. – Cindy A, Dallas, Georgia   16 Jan 2005

I want to see a illustration of the firetriangle – j mcleod,   13 Jan 2005

hi what can i find on the fire – Rebekah, jordan MN   11 Jan 2005

I have been interested in Triangle for many years, ever since I saw it depicted in a scene at a wax museum. It is very surprising that an event such as this does not have the place it deserves in the current history curriculum of our school system. You have an exceptional website and deserve kudos for the good work that you are doing. – Joe Schultz, Linden, Nw Jersey   7 Jan 2005

this site was truely informative and was a great asset in my research on legislation in the early 20th century – richard garland, Alaska   7 Jan 2005

If you grew up Jewish or Italian in New York in my generation (I turn 61 next month), the Triangle is part of our collective memory. What you have done here is educate beyond just affecting the emotions--and oddly or not, once knowledge is absorbed, the emotional force of the episode becomes even more terrible. The tragedy is that our children and grandchildren are growing up knowing exactly nothing about the history of labor, their own peoples, even their country. Ignorance may help some people but not those who need to remember. – Kenneth Wolman, Sea Bright, NJ   7 Jan 2005

My great grand mother was Julia Rosen and Israel Rosen was my great uncle. They did not die in vain. I wish their was more documentation on them. – Jennifer Rosen, Kansas City, Missouri   6 Jan 2005

I am the great grandson of Josepfina Carlisi,a victim of the fire.I remember hearing about my grand mother dying in this famous fire but never knew anything about it,until a friend showed me a copy of the book,"THE TRIANGLE FIRE" and saw her name in among the list of victims,now I want to know as much as I can about what happened,I will be researching my family history,and this will be an interresting entry in my family tree, but also it will help me connect with a family member that I never knew, and no one could tell me about,since my grandfather was only 2yrs old when she died and he had no memory of her thank you for this site it has been blessing to me and will continue to use it for a source of infomation – Robert J Curatolo, Sayville, NewYork   3 Jan 2005

An amazing collection of information about one of the most horrible events and, indeed, one of the most important events of the early 20th century, which helped direct later changes for industrial workers. Very facinating photos, letters, and newspaper articles. This is a wonderful inspiration for my new project. – Glen Werline, Los Angeles   29 Dec 2004
