This is the picture of Lily I taped to the wall above my laptop while I was writing. What does it make you think or feel?
I chose it because of her eyes. Later I learned that having a watch was a big deal and I wondered if she was showing it off.
Earliest newspaper article about Lily–it misspells her name and only uses her first initial, implying that she is a male pilot who shot down enemy aircraft in the early days of the Battle of Stalingrad
Saratov Factory manufacturing Lily’s aircraft, scroll to 18 minutes. What do you see?
