Special Virtual Tour: Life and Death in 1918
Join the Tenement Museum for a very special free virtual tour for an exploration of the flu pandemic of 1918. It would become the deadliest pandemic in human history so far, leaving a lasting legacy on public health, and tragic losses for families of the 50,000+ dead in New York City alone. This virtual tour will explore what made the flu of 1918 so devastating and how New York City responded to this global crisis. We will focus on how the pandemic is remembered by the Burinescus, a Jewish immigrant family from Romania who lived in our historic tenement building, and the stories of both members of the family who lived through it and their descendants. We invite you to think about the parallels between the 1918 Influenza pandemic and our current moment and the Covid-19 pandemic, and to think about how we will remember these pandemics in the years to come.
Venue: Tenement Museum
