That’s not how they felt towards the Jewish people, or towards the Roma, or any number of people who were from various other groups. Back then there were a lot of attitudes concerning “anxiety over the collapse of British Imperialism and racial mixing”. Since we only see the biased points of view of those supposedly of the good we’re never given a chance to see his.
Of the only foreigner whose account is ever given a kind account is Helsing’s is my point. In Victorian Society, those who were not from Western Europe again were pretty much always looked down upon treated with suspicion, and scorn because, to say nothing of the a lot of other issues back then that were there. Again we only have a certain point of view to look at. We never have the Count’s which I always felt was a disservice.
Also, how do we know that the multiple blood transfusions from different sources isn’t what killed Lucy? Medicine back in that was very slipshod, I mean four men each of whom the good doctor had no understanding of bloodtypes at all? Any of them could’ve carried any types of diseases that could’ve been transferred and Van Helsing could’ve never have been the wiser. Were the tools even used sanitized? That’s never made clear in the book either.
