Kagan, Helena 1 - still image [media]

"Throughout my career, I tried to uphold my two great loves: the love of children and the love of Jerusalem." Pioneer pediatrician Dr. Helena Kagan, the "children’s doctor of Jerusalem," devoted her life to the care and healing of Israel's youngest residents—Jews, Muslims and Christians. She is shown here (L) at the opening of the WIZO Jerusalem Baby Home in 1955, alongside the Home's director (C) and WIZO's first president, Rebecca Sieff.
