Coming back to life: Hadassah photos, last part

Trip to the past in photos, this time following eternal vision: Being Healthy. Collection of rare and fascinating pictures, taken at beginning of 20th century, documents start of Zionist medicine in Land of Israel. Viewing is not contagious

A collection of photographs and documents from the beginning of the previous century, discovered "at the last minute" before being tossed into the garbage can of history, document the chronicles of the Zionist medical activity at the Hadassah Women's Organization.


In the previous chapter we revealed a handful of the pictures taken in the first two decades of the 20th century, and this time we will present the health services which were operated in the Land of Israel until the State of Israel was established.
