    Story

    On the afternoon of December 30, 1903, during a sold-out matinee performance, a fire broke out in Chicago's Iroquois Theatre. In the short span of twenty minutes, more than six hundred people were asphyxiated, burned, or trampled to death in a panicked mob's failed attempt to escape. In Chicago Death Trap: The Iroquois Theatre Fire of 1903, Nat Brandt provides a detailed chronicle of this horrific event to assess not only the titanic tragedy of the fire itself but also the municipal corruption and greed that kindled the flames beforehand and the political cover-ups hidden in the smoke and ash afterwards.

    Charlene says: "Facinating Acount of a Great Tragedy"
    "Not just about the disaster"

    Would you listen to Chicago Death Trap again? Why?

    Yes, it is a really interesting story (but very sad).


    Any additional comments?

    I loved all the historical detail about the theatre and its neighbourhood; it gave the story so much more interest than a straight description of the disaster.
