Throughout our history we have had many tragic events and some of these events caused a very large amount of people to die or be mistreated. There were lots of people letting these acts be permitted because of their ignorance and pure hatred. The act of genocide and the extermination of groups of people happened because people were not speaking up against intolerance, hatred and propaganda. During the holocaust 6.3 million Jews died because of Greed,Hate,Silent Majority,and Propaganda, leading to genocide. The Holocaust was an event that had a big impact on our history.
He had been recovering pretty well but he fell ill again and never recovered. Death has been commonplace here in Germany the last few years with ex troops dying from battle wounds and people succumbing to the effects of poverty. Even years after the end of the war, death is still a prominent factor of everyday life. With the war and its consequences came hardships for many countries but because Germany was the antagonist of the war we got the brunt of the reparations for the war. The entire country has been made to suffer for Germany.
The Black Plague was a horrible epidemic that killed between 25 and 45% of the populations it encountered. The plague spread from China to Europe and the Middle East quickly. While the Black Plague hit the Middle East and Europe, Christianity and Islam were the dominant religions. Though they both lived through the horrifying experience of the Black Plague, they had different responses, and Muslims had the most reasonable one. During the Black Plague, the Muslims didn’t look to their God for answered to the death that was laid upon them, but they accepted it.
Although it was a bloody war, disease was the number one cause of death due to all the unsanitary equipment being used. Not only did the cleanness of things factor in the deaths caused by disease, but so did the knowledge of the people back then. They were not familiar with bacterial transmission, so not much was done to keep things sanitary. Luckily, today we have way better technology, knowledge and medical equipment. If it wasn’t for the Civil War and all the people who put their lives on the line, the world wouldn’t be how it is
The civil war took place in the 1800s. Approximately 620,000 people died in this war. Civil war medicine wasn’t very effective because diseases usually spread in reusing equipment. Due to lack of supplies and constant woundings, reusing equipment was required. Many woundings would just lead to amputations.
During the first outbreak those conditions resulted in a mortality rate of thirty-three percent of the population. Which, was not an uncommon number of deaths for that time period, due to the medical treatment and preventative drugs that where available. What is uncommon is this plague is it affected young men and not just the old or children. There are many different speculations as to what disease the Plague actually was, especially within the last century. Although, none have been proven yet.
In the thirteenth century in Europe, the population had a relatively good life. Filled with fair weather and an expanding count of humans, progression seemed to be running smoothly along. However, something terrible was brewing on the horizon: toward the end of the century, a natural disaster hit in a magnitude that had never been seen before by anyone. The Bubonic Plague was a form of sickness that spread through Europe in the Black Death’s reign, riding on infected rats from fleas. This deadly bacterium, Yersinia pestis, killed “50 to 60 percent of its victims” (page 284) and was accompanied by “high fever, swelling joints, swelling of the lymph nodes, and dark blotches caused by bleeding beneath the skin” (page 284).
It found a new way to spread, This name was called Airborne, how this worked was when someone coughed or sneezed, it would fly into another victim’s body. But this was probably the worst way it spread. The effects of the virus started out with just a little cough, then you would start to feel hot and cold at the same time, after that you got a big rash on your body, but in the middle of the rash were big black dots, the big black dots would turn into a big huge pus filled boils. Only in a matter of dayś you would drop to the ground and you would be dead. The second reason why Europe was in a Dark Age is because of the crusades.
During the mid-fourteenth century, a plague hit Europe. Initially spreading through rats and subsequently fleas, it killed at least one-third of the population of Europe and continued intermittently until the 18th century. There was no known cure at the time, and the bacteria spread very quickly and would kill an infected person within two days, which led to structural public policies, religious, and medical changes in Europe. The plague had an enormous social effect, killing much of the population and encouraging new health reforms, it also had religious effects by attracting the attention of the Catholic Church, and lastly, it affected the trade around Europe, limiting the transportation of goods. As a response to the plague that took place
Most diseases can be helped or cured. The methods of testing are unethical or give suspect at best. People did not name their kid to keep from being attached. They did that because he / she could of died of a whooping cough. Animal testing saves more lives than it harms.
