Visit the German American Heritage Center this Sunday to see an all new exhibit highlighting the life and work of the Midwestern heroine Mildred Fish Harnack.

We honor her as the only American woman executed under direct order from Adolph Hitler for her role in the Berlin resistance movement. Harnack was a professor at University of Wisconsin at Madison who joined the resistance against the Nazi's with her German husband. The exhibition opens Sunday, August 4th and will run through November 3rd.

Mildred Fish Harnack's heroic tale encompasses many valiant lessons and demonstrates the difference which one individual can make in standing up and taking action in the face of adversity.

Sponsors: This exhibit and related programming is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of the Quad Cities and the Holocaust Education Committee of the Greater Quad City Area and comes to us from the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.
