A very interesting site about a very interesting piece of history. Thanks. – L.M.D., Huntington, WV   25 Nov 2003

I felt the sadness of this era, where the financial status of your birth determined possibly having to endure the portrayed hardships and way of life in these articles. We study history so we do not repeat such injustices. May these historical articles be available forever and not forgotten. – Amity G, Red Hook, NY   24 Nov 2003

Very good information very eductional But it is sad how this peopel died – Jordan, New York   24 Nov 2003

hello.I read a book about this fire, and thought it was really interesting.This is a good topic for young people to learn about. More people should be educated on this nation mooving tragedy. – Emily, Sacramento,CA   24 Nov 2003

I think it is so sad how all these people died – Seema, sacramento, ca   24 Nov 2003

Very impressive. I have read and seen on TV stories about this fire and just want to cry. What a waste!! It is a lot better today but there are still problems in the workplace in many areas. I am involved in safety programs at work and teach Hazmat classes and just can't believe things like this can still happen today. "Production above worker safety". Thanks for keeping it in front of the public and maybe they will take the lessons learned back to work with them. I am a union man but thank God for OSHA. – Leonard Peters, Richland, WA   20 Nov 2003

WOrkers today may have forgotten how safe and humane working conditions came about-often on the backs and deaths of innocents. I hope this site is never taken down. – Barbara Carr, Dallas, TX   19 Nov 2003

Thank you to all the people at ILGWU for all your hard work. My family comes from a long line of seamstresses. My great grandma lost a great many of her friends here. God bless the union who brought us the 8 hour work day and weekends. Let's learn from this tragedy and not repeat our mistakes. May all the relatives feel that today justice is served. Keep on, Keeping ON! – Dorothy, Jackson,NJ   19 Nov 2003

God Bless Everyone! – Dana White, Springfield, Mass   6 Nov 2003

Out of all the things I have even read about. This has to be the saddest thing that could have ever happened (that I didn't live through). Reading the story over and over again, still not being able to soak up what had happened. I can really imagion what happened, and the terror those poor girls (and boys) had felt. I think this would be an interesting event to research on in my spare time. And I'm happy your site is here to use for the research. I haven't yet finish reading all of the things on it, but I should soon. – Danielle Young, Utah   5 Nov 2003

Wow! I read a lot about this because I'm doing history day on this topic. I was really suprised when I saw pictures and read what happened. I still can't believe it! – Jordan Dirks, Iowa   4 Nov 2003

excellent presentation and teaching tool for all ages – bh, hernando mississippi   3 Nov 2003

The “Triangle Factory Fire Scandal” was produced in 1978 by Alan Landsburg Productions and was re-released by U.S.A. Home Video in 1985. To the best of our knowledge, the film is no longer available for sale, and the video company is out of business. Unfortunately, the Kheel Center does not have a copy of the film, but we would welcome information on obtaining it for our collection. – Kheel Center staff,   3 Nov 2003

is the TV Movie, The Triangle Fatory Fire Scandal, available anywhere? I'd love to see it. – mike, Queens   1 Nov 2003

A great book was just written on this subject. I't called, Triangle: The Fire That Changed America, by David Von Drehle. It's the best source of info on the fire there's ever been. – Mike, Queens   1 Nov 2003

i feel really bad for the people that died and for the people that were relatives with any of the people that died in the fire that has to hurt – alycia seymour, baraga   31 Oct 2003

it is very cool – leroy gauthier, baraga michigan   31 Oct 2003

i want to know how old you have to be to work at the Triangle factory? – Brittney, Baraga   30 Oct 2003

what happened was horrible – Robert Blakley, Springfield MA   28 Oct 2003

I was told about this horrible event by my father years ago. My Grandfather was an FDNY firefighter at the time of this fire and helped fight it. Thank you for posting this site. – Rick Walsh, Coopersburg,PA   27 Oct 2003

i'm just relievef to live in an age where working conditions are much better than they used to be years ago. – Rachel, pennsylvania   24 Oct 2003

It's really sad that this happened and i think it's pretty cruel that somebody like the manager of the company could pay off the fire and safety inspectors without even caring about the lives of the workers. If you don't know what i'm talking about then rent the movie about the fire because it has alot of info. about what happened and it's really sad. – Dylan Holstein, South Burlington VT   22 Oct 2003

i am really sad at what happend almost a century ago, NOt only sad but i feel for those women who were in that factory and don't know how that wou ld feel. I slso feel that what the owners did was wrong and shoul've never even locked those doors after rhe first fire, the women when unsafe in their working conditions and had to burn in hell for something that they had no control of. God Bless those women and the people that lost there loved ones during that terrible fire on the 25 of march – Amanda miller, virgina oct 21 2003   21 Oct 2003

This was a very sad day in the history of our country. My prayers go out to all people touched by this horrible event. – Gwen Martin, NY   20 Oct 2003

I became aware of this horrible conflagration many years ago when I lived in Greenwich Village. The site today is peaceful and bereft of any indication of this horrible tragedy. The recently published, "Triangle. The fire that changed America", is a superb read and truly conveys New York of the period, the victims humble and hopefilled lives, and the horror of this event in a chilling perspective. Thank you for this contribution to the history of class struggle which so horribly punctuated this time in America. – Bruce Meyers, California   20 Oct 2003

I think you should write some info about bigger corporations like Nike and Gap...for those of us researching this topic – Mandy, Canada   16 Oct 2003

I had never heard of the Triangle Factory Fire until in my high school U.S. History class. My teacher mentioned it and I then took interest in the subject and looked into it on my own. I found that it was a disterbing moment in time and that nobody should have ever gone through something like that of the factory fire. – K. Hanson, KY   15 Oct 2003

This website is a very good website and it has alot of potential. – jjc, Fredonia, WI   14 Oct 2003

My heart goes out to all those that went through such a horrible ordeal. It is now 2003 and this is still continuing today. I worked for a man that constantly locked the door to the office - with no other way out. My greatest fear was being locked in the building alone and a fire starting in that old rotted building. We must not let this happen to anyone again. – MMW, Buffalo, New York   10 Oct 2003

Wow, this site helped me on a HUGE social studies project! Thanx for all your help! – S.F., AZ   9 Oct 2003

I like your website. its fab. – T-B, Under a bridge.   9 Oct 2003
