German artist Gunter Demnig sets a so called 'Stolperstein', or stumbling stone, to remember Nazi victim Mildred Fish-Harnack and her husband Arvid Harnack in Berlin, Friday, Sept. 20, 2013. The American teacher who resisted Adolf Hitler and was executed by the Nazis has been honored in a ceremony attended by U.S. diplomats and German officials. At an event Friday in Berlin an artist placed small commemorative paving stones in front of the last home of Mildred Fish-Harnack, who grew up in Milwaukee, and her German husband Arvid Harnack. The couple was part of a German group known as the “Red Orchestra” that tried to encourage resistance against the Nazis and fed information to the Soviets. Plaque reads : Here lived Mildred Harnack, born as Fish, 1902, arrested Sept. 7, 1942, High Treason, Berlin Ploetzensee ( name of the prison), Murdered Feb. 16, 1943.
