The Black Death
The Black Death was a very lethal and deadly epidemic. It has been widely debated years ago what the black plague really was, how the epidemic had spread, why and how were the Jewish people were responsible for the outbreak or not, and how people attempted to put a halt to the plague. Even up to this day scientists are still observing the DNA of the infected people found at mass burials . It was such a complex and widespread disease that no one can stop it and it killed a large amount of Europe’s population. It wasn’t one simple disease; there were many mutations and adaptation to it that the thought of treatment was just outrageous. Many Christians and other religions blamed the Jews for the events that had occurred even when they had no considerable evidence that is was the Jewish people who started this outbreak.
The Black Death was a devastating event in the history of the world. It has an estimated 70-250 million deaths in the 14th century. There was an overload of bodies to bury therefore the people of the time had to create mass graves for the infected people. Only a few had the reward of being buried in a legitimate cemetery. The disease arrived in Sicily in 1347-it came from trading ships from the black sea. The men on the boats were mysteriously dying from an unknown affliction. The ships were filled with blood and other human fragments. This is why it is called “the Black Death”. This plague has already entered Egypt, China, India, and Persia five years earlier but lack of communication can only confirm the plague as a rumor. Once these boats ported in Europe the plague spread drastically throughout the population and killed one third of Europe. People of healthy nature
Have been reported to spontaneously collapse then die. Symptoms of the plague were fever, chills, vomiting, sneezing coughing, and boils. This is not a chronic disease or a treatable one also. This disease can kill someone very rapidly even without recognition of having the disease. It’s highly contagious and spread tremendously with great speeds. The disease was spread through humans and animals. Once the disease ran its course in Europe it didn't pop up until this day but there still are some infections of the plague still spreading.
There was no actual explanation back then in regards to how and where the Black Death originated from, although large quantities of people blamed the Jews for the outbreak of the epidemic. Many considered the plague to be an act of god. Not because mice were infested with infected fleas. No one knew what to do so everyone turned on the Jews. Jewish hatred has been going on for years and when the world has nowhere to turn to they habitually put liability on the Jewish people. This gives non-Jews a feeling of relief because they can believe that someone is responsible for this terrible plague. Jewish people were tortured and questioned for their involvement in the distribution of the plague. This...
