White Plague is written by Czech novelist Karel Capek in 1937. Written at a time of increasing threat from Nazi Germany to Czechoslovakia, it portrays a human response to a tense, prewar situation in an unnamed country that greatly resembles Germany with one extra addition: an incurable white disease, a form of leprosy, is selectively killing off people older than 45.
