West German Red Cross Hospital, 1956

Tender care - These little children of misfortune are lucky in having the attention of skilled medical attendants.

Tender care - These little children of misfortune are lucky in having the attention of skilled medical attendants. As a result, many recover rapidly. A German and a Korean nurse attend to a small child in a bed on one  of the wards at the West German Red Cross Hospital. The weathered two-story former school building in the heart of Pusan, South Korea treats thousands of Korean civilians. Under the management of Prof. Dr. Guenther Huwer, director at the hospital since January 1954, 10 German doctors, 28 nurses and 31 administrative specialists supervise 250 Korean employees and treat more than 7,000 patients annually. Next year [1957], the first class of Korean nurses will graduate after completing a three-year training course, obtaining their nursing certificate.
