Dora, who lived at 11 Division Street, died in the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire. She had been in the United States for just a year. She worked 14-hour shifts among heaps of flammable fabrics and tissue paper patterns. The workrooms were lit by open-flame gas lamps and the cutters, mostly men, were allowed to smoke as they worked. The fire broke out on March 25, 1911, at 4:30 p.m. on the eighth floor. The one elevator stopped working, stairwells were choked with smoke and fire, and the fire escape collapsed. One hundred and forty-six people died
