Mildred Fish Harnack: The Story of a Wisconsin Woman’s Resistance

Born in Milwaukee, Mildred Fish Harnack is the only woman killed on direct orders of Adolf Hitler.  This exhibit tells the story of Mildred’s life growing up in Milwaukee and attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison where she met her husband Arvid Harnack.  Mildred and Arvid moved to Germany in 1929. After the Nazis came to power, they became involved in the resistance movement that became known as the Red Orchestra. Both were executed.  In addition to panels, this exhibit also showcases an installation created by German artist Franz Rudolf Knubel including a rubbing of the floor of lötzensee Prison, where Mildred was executed.
