What affects did the 1918 flu (aka Spanish flu) have on European culture and demographics?

Why isn't more known about it in modern days?

Bump

I don't know what effect it had on European culture and demographics, but considering it killed 2% of the world population, it probably had some effect.

Honestly it's surprising how little people know about the flu, I have only recently heard of it.

It had affects, loathing, grief, catharsis. But yes, OP almost certainly meant effects.

The deaths of so many people almost certainly depressed the economy. This would've contributed to the rise of extreme ideologies at the time. It's dificult to say for sure since the relationships are complex, but perhaps the flu played a bigger role in setting off the events that led to WW2 than people realize.

It kind of blended in with the horrors of WW1.

That and there was large amounts of media censorship.

Hence why it's called the Spanish flu, despite the fact that the best guess epidemiologists have is that it came from Kansas. Spain was a neutral country, and therefore the only place in Europe that reported the epidemic accurately, so people assumed it came from there.

didn't it start in Kansas or somewhere's around there?

Yes.
