Alright, as a WWII buff I'm going to give my interpretation of a few of the years that appear in video #3.
1939 = Germany invades Poland
1941 = US enters WWII
1945 = Hitler commits suicide; WWII ends
1929 = Great Depression begins
2001 = 9/11, obviously
I don't know why the poster is including all these dates though. Is it supposed to be a confession or ... ?

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire in New York City, New York, United States on March 25, 1911, was the deadliest industrial disaster in the history of the city of New York, and resulted in the fourth highest loss of life from an industrial accident in U.S. history. The fire caused the deaths of 146 garment workers, most of them women, who either died from the fire or jumped from the fatal height. Most of the workers could not escape the burning building because the managers locked the doors to the stairwells and exits to keep them from leaving early. People jumped from the eighth, ninth, and tenth floors as the ladders on the existing fire trucks could only reach the sixth floor. The fire led to legislation requiring improved factory safety standards and helped spur the growth of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, which fought for better and safer working conditions for sweatshop workers in that industry. The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory was located inside the Asch Building, now known as the Brown Building of Science. It has been designated as a National Historic Landmark and a New York City landmark.
