WWII Times Square V-J Day Kiss Metal Bookmark


When U.S. president Harry Truman declared the end of the war with Japan on August 14, 1945, there were spontaneous acts of joy throughout the United States. In Times Square a sailor grabbed a nurse and gave her a big kiss. Captured on film by both the U.S. Navy photo journalist Victor Jorgensen and Alfred Eisenstaedt it is the inspiration for this bookmark.
