Karsh Signature

Yousuf Karsh, master photographer of the 20th century

Lilian Levine

Lilian Levine, early 1940s

The Ottawa Jewish Archives shared this fabulous portrait from their collection, with the caption “Lilian Levine (Gould) in her Red Cross volunteer uniform in the 1940s. The image is signed, “To Mother with love, Lilian””

Karsh photographed many Canadian servicemen, servicewomen, and Red Cross volunteers like Lilian. Not all of them have their own records, but lots of them do. And as well as by name, you can search our records by keyword – for example Pilot Officer.
