Children affected by the influenza pandemic, 1918

Though children were less vulnerable to the influenza virus than adults, many were affected because their parents died or became very ill – 6,415 children lost one parent and 135 lost both. These young children, some of whom were orphaned during the pandemic, are being cared for at the Myers Kindergarten in Auckland.
