Tara's Thoughts

An Active Remembrance

Posted on: March 19, 2011

With the 100th anniversary of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire coming up next Friday the Progressive Jewish Alliance has put together some materials that commemorate this tragic event and invites you to discover your own connection to a dark chapter in our country’s history.  A very familiar Jewish perspective says “Those who do not remember history are bound to repeat it.”  In light of the recent attempt to strip the American worker of the protections of Union membership, collective bargaining rights, etc., the timeline, history, poetry and writings of the survivors seem particularly timely.
