Today is Mildred Fish-Harnack day in Wisconsin, an annual day to honor and remember the Wisconsin-born and raised hero who fought the Nazis in Germany and was the only American woman executed on direct orders of Adolf Hitler in World War II. Our friends at the Wisconsin Media Lab have created the new animated video below to do just that, as part of their ongoing Wisconsin Biographies project for teachers, families and all Wisconsin residents.

Explore more about this brave woman’s life through the full video and educational resources from Wisconsin Public Television’s 2011 documentary project, Wisconsin’s Nazi Resistance: The Mildred Fish-Harnack Story online here.
