Why did the Black Death spare Poland?

There are plenty of theories out there but I haven’t heard any that hold weight.
>>1504156(OP)
jews lived there so they didnt poison their own wells
How did Milan do it?
It only affected humans
>>1504156(OP)
low-density population
>>1504156(OP)
>1337
>modern borders
into the trash it goes
>>1504156(OP)
proper use & execution of quarantine measures; those the world would actually put into place now if a global pandemic was actually a serious thread.
>>1504156(OP)
It won't
It was actually poorly documented
>>1504156(OP)
the kingdom of poland established quarantine on its borders.
>>1504156(OP)
Kikes lived in poland and russia.
I thought this was common knowledge. Why would they poison their own wells?
>>1504156(OP)
what would europe be like today if not for the black death?
>>1504156(OP)
Low population density.
>Milan
didn't they just fucking burn the whole household with the inhabitants inside if someone got sick?
>>1504156(OP)
The plague traversed primarily through ships. When a new ship entered a port town it would bring the plague with it and spread from there. By the time it reached Poland it was three years later and it had already burned out and mutated. Also there was a low population density and news had traveled about the sickness so the people that were there knew about letting in outsiders.

The path that is accepted today by scholars is that it came from Mongolia steps and traversed along the water ways. Traveling from the East downwards following the coast and across to the West upward North bound.

An earlier quarantine/lock down across their borders. It's also why even populous Brugges or Milan didn't lose as much of their population.
A lot of areas didn't get it, if you overlap a map of drinking alcohol to those that didn't it's a huge correlation. The black death was a bacteria so having enough alcohol in your blood would kill it.

Black Death saw our flatland being country stuck between Germany and Russia and decided we're fucked anyway, so why bother
Even fleas don't want to touch poles
Less joggers around
Teutons to west and north.
Orthodox to east.
Turks to South.

Trade was minimal so no spread of foreign diseases.
jews mogged the plebs and implemened strict hygenie rules per torah

I've come to believe that Poles are the best Europeans. They exist against all odds, they're basically the only Europeans left who still fight against evil, they're just the most righteous country on a continent of godless globohomo zombies.
They washed their hands and bathed regularly.
>>1504156(OP)
not enough population density
>>1504156(OP)
for ppl with black backgrounds
These responses are dumb, Poland was one of the first countries with clean standards such as washing your hands. Countries back then used to toss their garbage in the streets and shit in them, poland did now. Because they practiced basic hygiene, they avoided the plague. They were also a primarily peaceful empire and thought diplomacy would resolve the crusades. It did not & Lithuania hates them for it.

Why did it save Milan?
>>1504156(OP)
black plague is a cliche and never happened. just because (((they))) wrote it in some faggot history book doesn't mean it was true.
the whole world is only about 1500 years old. there are proofs for it. in so called 14th century there were not many people around and everyone was living on breeding farms where they were bred for future use when the time to create "nations" would come.
>>1504156(OP)
The Jews did this, unironically in this case.
>>1504156(OP)
Because no one bothered going there. People in continental Europe were still complaining about the difficulties of reaching the Polish court in the late 18th century. Poland had few real roads and its population was scattered. Poland's landscape was much more difficult to traverse than the rest of Europe, save the Balkans which were at a major thoroughfare with the Islamic world.
Some historians give other reasons, but I think this is the most likely.
Polacks are not a threat to the jews, they have been the most jewish country in europe for a long time
>>1504156(OP)
Obvious innit? Even the fleas didn't want to go there.
Poland was full of jews and they were the ones spreading the plague.
>>1504156(OP)
Even the fleas know it is best to avoid Poland
Likely the same reason it spared north Scandinavia. Too cold. The black rat plague carrier was competing against other rats that faired better in the cold
>>1504156(OP)
We didn't kill off our cats like retards
>>1504156(OP)
Because God’s chosen people lived in Poland, how is that so hard for you to understand?
>>1504156(OP)
Poles sleep with rats so they built up an immunity. Basques are just the master race.
not even rats wanted to go there
Black plague was spread by ships and trade.
>>1504156(OP)
Just imagine living in those times. Would probably kill myself after walking down the street, seeing all the death, if I wasn't able to move up to the mountains that is.
>>1504156(OP)
Oh it affected large urban centers of trade and not some forest shithole of East Europe

Before USSR anything east of Budapest was underdeveloped. The baltics were literally fishing villages, Poland was 2 cities, lots of forest and cows
>>1504156(OP)
>Jews started the black plague
>most jews at the time lived in poland

coincidence? i think not...
>>1504156(OP)
>Why did the Black Death spare Poland
Back then, they were cleaning their own toilets.
Polish sperm cells battled it out with plague germs on a molecular level and destroyed the plague. Weak countries got their ass handed to them.
I expect excessive drinking was the cause
>>1504156(OP)
First toilets
>>1504156(OP)
Trade routes. Poland is more less surrounded by mountains you don't just cross because you want to and countries that you don't really travel though for no good reasons. Everywhere else is connected by sea trade but ol Poland there is right dead centre of nowhere important between someplace and somewhere else. People think Germany, Italy, Denmark is more or less the European mid point but its actually Poland.

Black death was in fact a radiation poisioning caused by huge solar flare during that time. That part of europe is rich with rare earth metals that in large quantities developed its own magnetosphere shielding this area from cosmic radiation.
Can you guess? Who spreads things to kill people while protecting itself? Who has great stock in Polish history?
>>1504156(OP)
No important trade routes low Population maybe
>>1504156(OP)
no chinks. like w/ every other outbreak the bug people have caused...
