Am I the only one who didn't know about Gerda Taro?

Am I the only one who didn't know about Gerda Taro? She came up when I was researching the Spanish Civil War this week in preparation for a trip to Barcelona. I probably read about her when I was in college studying the same subject, but my memory...well, you know.

Apparently, a really interesting photo-related character, who was crushed by a tank while doing her job as a photojournalist during that conflict. I've just ordered two books about her and her relationship with Robert Capa. Readers of this will understand that I'm a little embarrassed at my ignorance. Any input about her will be appreciated.
