I. INTRODUCTION The Black Death arrived in Europe on October 1348 when 12 Genoese trading ships arrived at the Sicilian port of Messina after a long journey through the Black Sea. The people who gathered on the docks that was about to greet the ships met with a horrifying surprise: Most of the sailors aboard the ships were dead, and those who were still alive were gravely ill. They were overcome with fever and delirious from pain. Also, they were covered in mysterious black boils that oozed blood and pus and gave their illness its name: the “Black Death.” The Sicilian authorities immediately told them to leave the harbor, but it was too late.

On a small ship, disease spreads easily; oftentimes people would die on the ships from malnutrition, illness and violence. During the voyage, Columbus lost many ships, the majority of them in fact. This caused even more cramped quarters, which in turn, made the spread of disease easier(“Christopher Columbus's Challenges He Encountered.”). Both of the men faced challenges during their journeys, and that is what makes their feats even more surprising and
Imagine if you were born into a country filled with poverty, fear, anxiety, despair and sorrow. The pain and suffering you would go through every day was so violent that you and your family had given up on all measures of hope. Every day you would fear persecution and you couldn’t even feel safe in the comfort of your own home.

The reader infers that the forceful winds and the powerful storm create disaster together.
It was the Spring of 1348, and the citizens of Europe were malnourished due to limited food supplies for such a large population. This made them more susceptible to the outbreak of the Black Death. The Black Death originated in Asia, then moved westward into Sicily. From Sicily, the plague crept its way up through Europe infecting millions of people, in total killing more than one third of Europe’s population. In fact, over fifty percent of the population of Siena died, along with fifty percent of Paris, eighty percent of Florence, and over two thirds of Venice.
Harold remembered the weather being terrible that night, his boat crew had to bail out the knee-high ocean water with their helmets just so they wouldn’t sink. When his boat landed on Omaha beach, Harold was immediately aware that he probably wouldn’t make it out alive. He was injured three times on the first day of battle, but continued fighting.

"The trip to the United States was awful. All of the other immigrants on the boat had to be really close to each other," Yulia says " because everyone was tightly pressed together in a little area, when one person got sick many people would.

Kira tried her best to protect Yulia from the horrific illnesses and deaths but that was almost impossible due to their situation.
