American History-Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire–Videos

“…In the early 1900’s, young women shirtwaist makers – mostly Jewish immigrants, still in their teens –were a powerful force for change. They brought together women’s rights activism and union power, and ignited sweeping changes to worker safety laws.

On Saturday, March 25, 1911, a fire broke out on the top floors of the Triangle shirtwaist factory. Firemen arrived at the scene, but their ladders weren’t tall enough to reach the upper floors of the 10-story building, so workers trapped inside jumped to their deaths. In a half hour, the fire was over, and 146 of the 500 workers — mostly young women — were dead.

Many of us have read about the tragic Triangle fire in school textbooks. But the fire alone wasn’t what made the shirtwaist makers such a focal point for worker safety. In fact, workplace deaths weren’t uncommon then. It is estimated that over 100 workers died every day on the job around 1911.

The shirtwaist makers’ story was so compelling because of the events leading up to the fire. After the fire, their story inspired hundreds of activists across the state and the nation to push for fundamental reforms. For some, like Frances Perkins, who stood helpless watching the factory burn, the tragedy inspired a lifetime of advocacy for workers’ rights. She later became Secretary of Labor under President Franklin D. Roosevelt. …”

The Triangle Fire

It was the worst factory fire in the history of New York City. Late in the afternoon of Saturday, 25 March 1911, fire broke out at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company, located on the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors of the Asch Building. In less than five minutes fire snuffed out the lives of 146 workers.

Dutch immigration

From 1820 to 1900 over 340,000 people from Holland emigrated to the United States. After the Second World War Holland was the most-densely populated country in the world. As a result the Dutch government encouraged people to emigrate to America. Today there are approximately 8,000,000 Americans of Dutch descent in the United States. The majority live in just ten states: California, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Washington and Iowa. An investigation carried out in 1978 revealed that since 1820 over 359,000 people emigrated to the United States from Holland.
