Beverly Hills Supper Club Disaster +40 Years

Some of the 3,000 people who were there that night watch the structure burn. 165 of their fellows burned to death.

Southgate, Kentucky has treated this shadowed ground in the manner all such should be. It has never been built upon since that night and although private property with no legal access, survivors, relatives of the dead, and community sympathizers have laid their homemade memorials, and marked the different parts of the long gone site with signs, "Zebra Room Origin of Fire 9 pm," and the like, on trees that have reclaimed the land. 

Deepest condolences to the victims. And deepest respect for the people of the Kentucky-Ohio border for remembering it as they do and as none other do their tragedies. That is the way it should be done. Deepest respect.
