Just finished The Great Mortality (John Kelly) about the Black Death. Fifty percent of Europe dead in two years. About the only folks who didn't suffer quite as badly - all three forms of it - were some native Irish and northern Scandinavians. Everybody else? Bam. And like a good bit of history, it turns into Jewish persecution because they have to pin blame on somebody, even if the Jews are dying just as much as everyone else.
