Storyboard Text

  • OH  goodness!
  • This building was a triangle shirtwaist factory that had mostly Jewish and Italian women workers.
  • We are going to die!
  •  One day the workers were about to go home when someone threw a cigarette butt into a fabric scrap bin and caught the 8th, 9th, and 10th floors on fire one by one killing 146 people.
  • Some of the workers had to jump off of windows because the doors were locked and the firefighters couldn't catch them.
  • Give them better health condition!
  • Put in equipment to help the workers in case of a fire!
  • While some workers jumped out of windows the others tried to go through the doors but find that some of them were locked and the workers caught on fire.
  • The next couple of days after the fire ended families lined up to find their loved ones bodies in caskets trying to identify them so they could be buried.
  • After the  shirtwaist fire people who saw it wanted to make better conditions for factory workers.
