”Swiss-born American physician and political activist Regina Fischer (later Pustan) (1913 – 1997) dries off aboard the cross-channel ferry ‘Normannia’ surrounded by fellow anti-nuclear protesters after she jumped overboard in the port of Le Havre en route to Moscow, Le Havre, France, June 15, 1961. She was the mother of chess champion Bobby Fischer.” (Photo by Express Newspapers/Getty Images)
