Greta Zimmer Friedman

The Kiss & 9-11

Greta Zimmer Friedman, the 21 year old dental assistant reputedly the woman often mistaken for a nurse in the famous August 14, 1945 V-J Day photos, has died at age 92. The scene, long known as The Kiss, shows her with a young sailor, who apparently was kissing women at random in Times Square as part of the spontaneous, raucous celebration in Times Square.
