Therese Bonney was operating a news-photo service in Paris between the World War I and World War II, but soon became very disgusted at the poor quality of the photographers' work. So she settled on a simple solution--doing it herself. As the Second World War was becoming more and more a reality, she began covering military events. While doing this, she began recording the effects of the war on children. Her book, Europe's Children, was eventually made into a movie in 1947 called The Search. Ms. Bonney remained involved with cultural relations between the U.S. and France after the war.
