Triangle Accolades

I want to commend you for your March 25 special section on the centennial of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire. I will use it in my master’s-level class, “Social Welfare and the Jewish Community,” in the College of Social Work at the Ohio State University.

The Forward took up the cause of the labor union movement 100 years ago and continues the battle for the worker in our time. My grandmother read the Yiddish Forward, and I am a proud subscriber today.
