Storyline

On March 25, 1911, a catastrophic fire broke out at the Triangle Waist Company in New York City. Trapped inside the upper floors of a ten-story building, 146 workers - mostly young immigrant women and teenage girls - were burned alive or forced to jump to their deaths to escape an inferno that consumed the factory in just 18 minutes. It was the worst disaster at a workplace in New York State until 9/11. The tragedy changed the course of history, paving the way for government to represent working people, not just business, for the first time, and helped an emerging American middle class to live the American Dream. Written by HBO Publicity

Quotes

Susan Harris: From a personal point of view, I'm happy that my grandfather didn't have to go to jail. Looking at it from the victims' and their families' point of view, if my daughter had died in that fire, you know, if he hadn't been my grandfather, I probably would have shot him.

well done presentation of history
31 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this documentary on HBO. It gives us a description of various peoples' ancestors who either survived or who were killed in this horrific fire. It is balanced in its presentation, in the sense it does not get political.

I would definitely watch this more than once. Make sure you have tissues handy since it is very sad. I follow this historical event, since my great grandfather worked for the city morgue in 1911. He told other family members stories about being there to take the deceased to the charity piers.

If you want to know more, read the book triangle the fire that changed America. It gives a deeper picture of the 1909 strikes, fire and its aftermath.
