Influenza in 1918 #general


Stephen G. Esrati <stevsta@...>
 

At its December meeting, the Cleveland JGS showed a wonderful PBS film
about the influenza epidemic of 1918.

Nina and I had wondered about what happened to people who simply
disappeared >from our families. Now we believe they may have succumbed to
the flu epidemic.

But the strange thing, according to Cleveland obituaries of the time,
the flu was never mentioned in the obits.
