Greta Friedman, R.I.P.
Greta Zimmer Friedman was half of one of history’s most iconic photos. She has died at age 92 after a bout of pneumonia. The famous kiss in Times Square was captured by Alfred Eisenstaedt on August 14, 1945 and published shortly afterwards in LIFE magazine.
The dental assistant and the sailor who kissed her weren’t identified until 2012, despite the magazine republishing the photo in 1980 in an attempt to identify the pair.
