THE DESTRUCTION CAUSED
BY EUROPEAN DISEASES
of European diseases around the world
Through a long period, Europeans had built up partial immunity to
many diseases such as measles, smallpox, dysentery and tuberculosis.

destruction to the tribal and peasant civilizations they encountered.
Filmed in an Australian graveyard, this recounts the tremendous losses
among Australian aborigines.
