Nino Jorjadze (1884 -1969)

Zakaria sent his daughter Nino to the University of Sorbonne in France. Immediately after the start of WWI, Nino Jorjadze went to the front as a nurse, where she was awarded the St. George Medal for Courage. It was during her time on the front that she, a photography enthusiast, recorded on tapes as well as in her diaries everything she saw, heard, and experienced with the accuracy of a documentary and thus created the first photographic archive of the Caucasian front (1914–1917) during WWI. Nino Jorjadze went down in history as the first Georgian female photojournalist.
