Our main topic of interest are American Army nurses. The Army Nurse Corps has been an official part of the US Army since 1901. Our task is to authentically represent the appearance, uniforms and equipment of nurses and the conditions prevailing in American medical installations during WWII. Through collecting, travelling and contact with veterans we try to recreate historical realities as faithfully as possible. We take care of details such as hair, makeup and personal items. We want to show that ladies like us, over 70 years ago, had to deal with much worse conditions, while working with the awareness that the lives of hundreds of soldiers are in their hands. At present, we are the only organized and all-female reenacting group portraying the Army Nurse Corps in Poland and the Czech Republic. Our activities are based on participation in historical reenactments in Poland, Czechia and abroad, organization of static display and lectures, as well as cooperation with historical institutions and those promoting American culture. We are open to new collaborations. Input/Help Email dated 9/24/2022: The scanned envelope on your page shows the name of the unit where Norma served - 103rd Evacuation Hospital.

It seems that after V-E Day, the hospital moved to Austria, where it took care of prisoners from liberated concentration camps. I'm still trying to find some information about Norma.

But last month, as we paused within our headquarters to acknowledge Women’s History Month, I was blown away by images our historian shared of First Army nurses wading onto Omaha Beach. The women of the Army Nurses Corps – our historic block-A patch clearly visible on their left shoulders – pushed their way through the surf, weighed down with medical supplies and equipment, en route to set up the 51st Field Hospital. …In the Hollywood movies and newsreels we see, the heroes of World War II tend to be men. We call them the Greatest Generation and know some of them by name: Dick Winters, Audie Murphy, Francis Currey. But the unsung patriots of the First Army Nurses Corps should be added to that list: Lois Grant, Madalyn Andreko, Josephine Jennis, along with dozens more. At First Army, we often say we stand on the shoulders of giants. Some of those are certainly the courageous nurses who “Earned the A” in the Second World War. RED CROSS WW2 Red Cross shows up in various Orian-connected letters See also Wynn-4 Nurse Corps History Learning Site Excerpt: The Red Cross played a very important role in World War Two with the help they gave to prisoners of war. The Red Cross worked within the confines that war puts on it – that the belligerent powers will allow the Red Cross to do its work. If warring nations do not allow this to happen, then the Red Cross can do little. War History Online Perhaps linked to this which includes a discussion on Mauthausen: In March 1945, permission was given for Red Cross delegates to visit the death camps, but on a condition to stay there until the end of the war. Ten delegates volunteered. They visited Dachau, Mauthausen, and Theresienstadt. Louis Haefliger, one of the delegates, prevented the forceful eviction or blasting of Mauthausen-Gusen by alerting American troops, thereby saving the lives of about 60,000 inmates. Even though this was a direct violation of the ICRC neutrality claim, it was a human thing to do. But, he was condemned by the ICRC and rehabilitated only in 1990, when his reputation was restored by the then-president of the Committee, Cornelio Sommaruga.
