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.

There's even a song by Alt-J called "Taro" referring to her and Capa.
