Revisit (safely) the influenza pandemic of 1918

Revisit (safely) one of the most fatal pandemics in human history. Discover why the illness was so deadly, where it might have originated – not Spain, despite being called the Spanish flu – why doctors still study it today, and how it may have indirectly led to World War II.

Ms. Hoffman from our Mentor-on-the-Lake Branch also shares stories from the pandemic’s victims, including one with a family connection.
