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.
