These photos were taken in Ethiopia in the mid-late 1940s by photographers Dorsa Mishler and John Lehman while on their mission service at Nazareth hospital. The hospital was founded by the Mennonites at the invitation of Emperor Haile Selassie in a warehouse built by the Italians during the occupation.
