This is my mother, Barbara Taylor Jewell, who passed away in November. The photo was taken in 1947 when she was a freshman entering Clark College (now Clark-Atlanta University) in Atlanta, Georgia.  The photographer liked my mother’s photo and the “unusual” hairstyle she styled herself. He asked if he could use her photo as one of his samples. My grandmother, who insisted on meeting him first, approved.

coolchicksfromhistory:

Young widow Yvonne Roques worked with Bishop Paul Rémond in Nice to hide approximately a hundred Jewish children during World War II.  Yvonne’s home served as a way station before more permanent hiding places were found.   Unable to remember the names of all the children she saved, Yvonne shared the photos above with Yad Vashem in hopes of identifying these children.  If you recognize any of these children or are interested in seeing more of Yvonne’s unidentified photos, visit Yad Vashem’s website.
