During 1607-1611, early Jamestown colonists died to many reasons like starvation, occupations, and drought. Colonists did not have many resources to live a long life. That is why they died so fast through 1607-1611. Colonists died because they tried to find a new settlement for more land so they can have more resources and for a stronger defense, but instead they got attacked and there was not a lot of food there to feed them all. Colonists died by attacks by Indians.
Night: Dehumanization “He was so terrible that he was no longer terrible. Only dehumanized” (F. Scott Fitzgerald). Jews were treated so badly that they began to act terribly but eventually they reached the point beyond repair and it was all due to dehumanization. The Holocaust took place in WW2, it was a horrific event that killed millions of Jews. Many Jews were taken from their homes and were killed, or were treated less than animals until death of starvation or exhaustion.
Document 5 shows a testimony given by a factory worker about how numerous people died at two separate mills because of dangerous working conditions including hazardous materials in the air to dangerous machinery. The worker who testified was also said to die within the year of the testimony due to poor lung health because of the dust in the mills and malnutrition. This document shows how many workers from different factories all have dangerous working conditions and that it is due to the lack of safety precautions and caring about the well-being of the workers, and because the point of view is coming from a worker it also shows what the factories from someone who is basically living in them instead of simply being an observer like the many other documents. The
The black death killed millions of people, and there was so many dumb and pretty weird ideas for helping and getting rid of the black death that almost nobody lived.

Newgate prison should not have continued more than 50 years because of the amount of death due to the environments out and inside. Due to lack of water, light, and diseases. From Daniel Defoe quote, “ The prison actually was an unhealthy place, which physicians partially refused to visit. It is said that people passing by the gaol held their noses and that some shopkeepers nearby had to close their stores for the summer, because of the incredible stench..”(Defoe 18)That proves even from the outside it’s morose due of its lack of sunlight and odor. From the inside view, so many bugs that can hear cracking of the ground, wall that has unpredictable things that are growing from, and lastly famed for its dark squalor, overcrowded, lice-ridden dungeons.
Approximately around the 1340’s, the Black Death was rampant through Europe. There were three variations of it called bubonic, septicemic and pneumonic. The people of the time believed the plague was a punishment of God because they had no knowledge of germs and how they spread. The plague was killing many people and out of fear they came together in churches to pray but this only spread things more. The priest and noblemen fled leaving their people to die.
This Primary Source is an excerpt from "The Cremation of Strasbourg Jewry, St. Valentine's Day, February 14, 1349—About the Great Plague and the Burning of the Jews" This document talks about how the Jews were blamed for the spread of the plague by putting poisons into water and wells. Because of this it was decided that all Jews would be burned to death and none would be allowed to enter specific cities for 200 years. Our primary source gives us an idea of what people thought started the plague. Many people blamed the Jews saying that they had killed christ and that they poisoned the water and the wells with the plague. The Black Plague allowed a new wave of Anti-Semitism to spread through Europe.
The plague had taken a toll onto the population as it continued to fall until slowing down by 1352. As Molly Edmonds states, “ the workforce had been destroyed -- farms were abandoned and buildings crumbled”. This helps to prove that there was a major loss of population by telling of how there wasn’t enough people to even keep the building stable. The medical response to the plague was very little due to them not knowing much about the epidemic at the time. They had observed that people who were around the sick had often became sick also (Calliope).
Which was in Europe during 1347, otherwise known as the Fourteenth Century. People were terrified of it, they separated them and their families from others, and left their family who carried the plague. It was every man for themselves. The symptoms of the most common plague, which is called black death consisted of bigger lymph nodes, headaches, chills, fever, and

If war can eliminate people 's lives, so can a plague. The Black Death was the disastrous pandemic of mankind. This plague swiped over Europe and parts of Asia and Africa.

Cambodians were killed in mass numbers once they had reached the labor camps. They were killed because they were inefficient workers, they did not listen, or even if they were ill. This greatly reduced the cambodian population (Ngor 214). In Night, once Elie reaches the camp, a doctor named Dr. Mengele examines the physical condition of the prisoners’ bodies. He determines whether or not the prisoners would be capable of doing labor or if they were sick.
As people in the 1400’s continued to run from this disease and at this time in history most Christians persecuted Jews in Europe because they needed to blame someone for causing the outrage. Some other Jews were blamed them for bad luck and even bad weather. Other people thought it was a punishment from God. The Jews were even forbidden to work in government and were shunned from the towns and others were killed. This forced them to live on the outskirts of town in places called ghettos.
The Bubonic Plague struck Italy and changed the people, their views on life and its purpose. Originating from the east, this disease was a killing machine for at that time medicine had not advanced to the stage that it has today. Almost a third of Europe’s population fell victim to the Plague. The Bubonic plague led to the death of many people, their family, after turning to god and religion for a while realised that prayer alone was of no help. The people realised that it was time they began searching their world for explanations other than the spiritual for human loss and suffering.
The final major outbreak of the Plague was known as The Great Plague of London which occurred in the 1600’s. The first outbreak called the Justinian Plague ripped through the Middle East and Asia killing tens of millions of people. This outbreak changed society at the time and the rebuilding
