Abstract:
Postcard featuring a color illustration of nurses being shot at by soldiers. The nurses, who are wearing brown dresses, white aprons with a red cross, and white headcloths, are clustered around a broken cart, which has a white flag with a red cross. Two nurses are standing and leaning against the cart. One is kneeling, with her hands in the air. One is laying on her back with her head on the ground, and another is lying down but holding her head up. Another is lying on her side, with her face away from the shooting soldiers. Another nurse is on her knees and leaning against a wagon wheel. There is also a man in a soldier's uniform among the victims. The soldiers who are shooting are wearing bluish uniforms, and there are puffs of smoke in front of them from the gunfire. There are some tall trees standing in the area of the incident.
