    I sent a check to donate to the memorial at the E 11th St. address I had. I hope you get it without a problem. Please let me know. I did not know the POB address.

  • this is so heartbreaking and sadly could have been avoided. It is dishearteneing to know that the people who rented the factory were not imprisoned. If the workers were not locked in – many more could have been saved.
    As a member of the SOns of Italy in Watertown, massachusetts, we commemorate this event every year. This year it will held on March 3, 2019. I will be speaking at the event. I am an elected Massachusetts Governor’s Councillor.
    We have a lunch and speak about this horrific event so we will never forget.
    Thank you.
