Triangle Fire Family Descendants Speak Out 100 Years After The Fire
The Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in New York City was the largest industrial catastrophe in US history to that point. The deaths of 146 mostly immigrant Jewish and Italian women garment workers shook not only New York but the US. It took place at the same time of a massive union organizing drive that included the issue of health and safety protection for garment workers.
In Northern California, there are descendant's of the fire and at this forum they will speak about how the Triangle Fire impacted on their lives and their families and what it means today for the American people.
Panelists:
Eileen Nevitt, Granddaughter of Triangle Fire garment worker
Steve Rosen, Grandson of Triangle Fire garment worker
Michel Pred, relative of Triangle Fire garment worker
Elise Kline, Granddaughter of Triangle Fire garment worker
And others
With Yiddish Labor Songs by Hali Hammer
