Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: Mar. 25, 1911
Manhattan
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

A memorial for 10-15 victims of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, March 25, 1911. They are interred in the Workman's Circle section of the cemetery. The factory, on the upper floors of a supposedly fireproof building near Washington Square in Manhattan, caught fire and 145 people perished - trapped by doors that were locked to prevent union organizers from entering the premises. The disaster led to an overhaul of fire codes, and legislation to protect worker's safety. (bio by: Joe Fodor)

It's a shame it took this horrible tragedy to open others' eyes about workers' safety.

Remembering the women who died in a terrible fire because there was no way out. Some jumped to their deaths rather than face being burned alive. May they all Rest Peacefully with their Loved Ones. With Sympathy and Respect from Oregon,
