In good health: Taking care of Jerusalem's children
In the third installment of the series describing the early history of the Hadassah Hospital on Mount Scopus, we present a selection of photos from the 1920s-1940s documenting medical treatments of adults and children in the hospital, clinics and schools. Please help us identify the people in the photographs

A rare collection of photographs from the beginning of the 20th century was recently discovered. In the first installment we brought you the story of the hospital's construction. Last week we presented photos that depict the story of Hadassah and its employees during the British Mandate and the War of Independence.

 

In this third and last installment, we present a selection of photos from the 1920s-1940s documenting medical treatments of adults and children in the hospital, clinics and schools.

 

In publishing these photographs, we're hoping that you can help provide information about them. The goal is to include them in the Haifa University database collection
