There never should've been such an issue like this. I don't see how anyone could live with such a disaster. Especially the owners of the company that got out immediately, not even thinking about their employees. – Shelby R. Bourke, Hookstown, Pa   20 Oct 2014

Thank you for making this information open and available to all! I went to NYU and recall with sadness the yearly memorial to all the factory workers who perished in the fire. My favorite part of April is when volunteers write the names of the the dead outside their tenements across the city. Such a powerful way to keep the people alive. – Brooke Young, East Village, New York, NY   19 Oct 2014

Just saw the 'American Experience' documentary for 2nd time - Thank you for keeping this remembrance going so that the significance of this tragedy should not be lost - Any time I find myself complaining about my boring desk job I need to remember these courageous hard working people and what they suffered thru and sacrificed so I can have the LUXURY of that complaint. My grandmother was born in 1912. My great-grandparents were immigrants - essentially these could be 'our' relatives. Their suffering has lead to our protective rights. I recall a quote - cannot remember the speaker: "The arc of humanity always bends toward JUSTICE". – Michael Guenard, Mt.Prospect, Illinois   16 Oct 2014

My father was a firefighter for 54 years. I grew up in a household where I watched with great interest as my father dashed out into the night to goodness-knows-what. This fostered in me a great admiration for firefighters and an even greater compassion for those to whom life dealt these tragic blows. Even before the internet, I spent much time researching such tragic events as the Iroquois Theater Fire, the Hartford Circus Fire, the Cocoanut Grove Fire, and of course, that of the Triangle Shirtwaist Company. I wanted to know the victims' names so that they were not forgotten and lost to history. All this being said, I want to thank the authors, editors, and researchers for this site. You have added so much to my previous information and have helped to keep the victims alive in our memories. Thank you again. – DH, Greenville, SC   28 Feb 2014

this tragedy piques my interest because everyone of this women tried to make a better life for themselves in the US and they all died horribly – stephen didovich, brooklyn   27 Feb 2014

I just seen a documentary on TV. I wanted to learn a little more about this tragedy. I searched for Sarah Cooper one of the workers who jumped out of the building, survived but later died days after. And that's how I came across to your website where you pictured her tombstone. Scrolling through your other photos, I was very moved. Such a terrible tragedy, but I'm glad labor laws were put into affect to improve working conditions. I remember this Triangle Factory Fire in college when I was studying about OSHA standards. Thank you for recognizing those who died and those who survived and letting the community remember this tragic event that was a great lesson to all. – Bella Bates, Honolulu, HI   26 Feb 2014

This was such an eye opener for me, and even though I read on this subject prior to this point, this website truly gave me a clearer picture on just how horrific this was. – Kate L√≥pez, Southampton, PA   25 Feb 2014

This has helped me a great deal with the cycle of poetry I'm writing about triangle for my poetry class- the information about how long people had lived in the states and where they lived was a great resource for getting to know them as more than just a list of names. I'm grateful for the work you have done. – Antonietta DeFazio May, Rexburg, Idaho   24 Feb 2014
