Helen touches the face of a wounded soldier at a hospital in North Carolina, 1945
Helen is meeting a patient in Moore General Hospital of North Carolina. Paul Grossman, a sergeant from Nebraska, is sitting on his hospital cot, surrounded by his soldier friends. Helen is sitting beside him, feeling his jaw, to understand his speech. According to a story written on the back of the photograph, Paul is saying that he just won $1,260 in a contest, but he is just as excited to meet Helen. In fact, Paul called Helen one of the most remarkable figures in either the ancient or modern world! The picture was taken on June 11, 1945.
