This intensely moving picture of Edith Cavell shows the famous nurse on ward duty, looking at her patients with a facial expression of compassionate concern and genuine empathy. It is all the more affecting and powerful an image given the fate of this great humanitarian, who was murdered by the Germans on 12 October, 1915.
