Remembering the Triangle Factory Fire, 100 years later


This exhibit houses two collections of survivor interviews.

As research for his book, The Triangle Fire, published in 1962, Leon Stein conducted interviews with several survivors. Read 19 of those interviews here.

Sigmund Arywitz, California State Commissioner of Labor, conducted the oral history interviews with survivors living in California in 1957 and 1986, for which we have Arywitz's audio recordings. Listen to those interviews and read the transcripts here.
