Welcome to Nurse Week here at OPOD. We will be looking at these Angels of Mercy over the last hundred years or so. We start with this picture from 1938. It shows a nurse from the Anna Spafford Baby Home in Jerusalem handing out bread in the city to old people during the Arab Siege of that year. The city was under attack and just about shut down, and these nurses brought great comfort and relief to many residents of the city.


  1. Does anyone know of a historically accurate book to read, telling about this time in Jerusalem?

  2. Did you know that Nurses' week is the first full week of May? Nice to have another one!
