  • The US sailor who was photographed kissing a woman in Times Square while celebrating the end of World War Two has died.

The black and white image of George Mendonsa and Greta Friedman, best known as "The Kiss", is one of the most famous photographs of the 20th century.

Mr Mendonsa has died aged 95 after having a seizure on Sunday, his daughter Sharon Molleur told The Providence Journal daily newspaper.

The photograph of him kissing Ms Friedman, a dental assistant who was dressed in a nurse's uniform, was captured on V-J Day on 14 August 1945.

Mr Mendonsa gripped and kissed Ms Friedman despite having never met her before.

Although revered as a representation of joy at the end of the war, it has also been described as capturing the moment of a sexual assault.

Ms Friedman herself said she did not view it that way, but in a 2005 interview with the Veteran History Project confirmed that it wasn't her choice to be kissed.

  • El marinero que besó a una mujer en pleno Times Square mientras la gente celebraba el fin de la Segunda Guerra Mundial en las calles de Nueva York, protagonista de una icónica foto de la época, murió a los 95 años, informó su hija al Providence Journal. Falleció por una apoplejía el domingo 17 de febrero de 2019.

Era George Mendonsa y fue desplegado en el Pacífico durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y estaba de vacaciones cuando llegó la noticia y, eufórico, corría por la calle y besó a una enfermera que cruzaba. 
El momento fue retratado por el fotógrafo Alfred Eisenstadt para la revista Life. Greta Zimmer Friedman, la mujer de la imagen, era una enfermera que también salió a celebrar el fin de la guerra y murió en 2016 a los 92 años. Foto: Archivo / AFP

  • ⇝ The Kiss ⇜
Era il 14 agosto del 1945 e a Times Square giunge la notizia della fine della seconda guerra mondiale. Partono i festeggiamenti e, in preda all’entusiasmo, due ragazzi che non si conoscevano si baciano. Lui un marinaio, lei un’infermiera. Eisenstaedt, fotografo di Life, li immortala accidentalmente facendoli entrare nella storia per sempre .. L’identità dei due ragazzi rimase sconosciuta fino al 1980. Ieri ci ha salutati all’età di 95 anni George Mendonsa quel marinaio in cui tutti noi ci siamo immedesimati e qualche anno prima a 92 anni lei, Greta Zimmer Friedman .. Ci hanno forse abbandonato fisicamente ma questa foto e il suo significato, rimangono ETERNI .. La fine della Guerra e la rinascita dell’ Amore ..
Grazie ♥️

  • Der "küssende Matrose" vom Times Square ist tot: George Mendonsa soll jener Soldat gewesen sein, der auf einem der berühmtesten Fotos zum Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs zu sehen ist. Er wurde 95 Jahre alt. Mendonsa war durch eine Kuss-Szene während einer spontanen Siegesfeier zur Kapitulation Japans im Zweiten Weltkrieg auf dem Times Square in New York am 14. August 1945 bekannt geworden. Er soll es gewesen sein, der während des spontanen Jubels in den Straßen von New York die junge Frau in Krankenschwesternuniform erblickte, seine Arme um sie schlang, ihren Oberkörper nach hinten neigte und sie küsste.
