    In 1918 my Great grandmother was 18. She was sent out to a tiny village on the border between Poland and Russia where she was working for food and shelter, as she was a half orfant not treated well at home.

    This was released well before the Coronavirus hit, makes it even more poignant.

    I love documentaries like this. Pure facts, no fancy stuff, no agenda.

    Wow. This is how documentaries should be made. More facts and historical photos and less dramatic reenactments.

    A lot of them made it through the WW1 just to die from the flu.

    The documentary mentions people ignoring the quarantine rules. That's what people are doing here in California. They're going out, eating and drinking at restaurants as if there is nothing occurring.

    It’s not if it’s when. History repeats itself and some people have not learned, it’s a shame ☹️

    Ignoring scientists and public health experts led to the spread of a pandemic. Hmmm.......this sounds awfully familiar.

    My grandfather died from this flu. He was only 28 years old. It left my 2 year old father and his baby sister fatherless and financially destitute. I never got to meet my grandfather as I wasn't born till 36 years later. This event changed the entire future history of my family. And if this wasn't bad enough my dad had to face the great depression, World War II and becoming a disabled veteran. It was a very dangerous stretch of years....1918 through 1946

    Friends, get your seasonal flu shot ASAP. If you get that flu, then your immune level will be low, and you are more likely to get covid. Best wishes to all. We are all family, and there is one race --- the human race. As John Donne wrote, "Every man's death diminishes me... Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee."
