This book is an excellent presentation of facts regarding the ladies garment factory fire of 1911. The numerous photographs included throughout bring the story to life. What owners Max Blanck and Isaac Harris did during the trial and afterwards in rebuilding their business will shock you. The horror is presented truthfully but without bias. The chapter titles evoke a feeling of empathy and give a sense of the reality that the victims were people deserving of a justice they did not recieve. Supplementary notes provide a timeline of events, further reading list, and an index of topics and associated persons. Good for adults as well as the recommended age group.
