People place flowers near so called 'Stolpersteine', or stumbling stones, set by German artist Gunter Demnig to remember Nazi victim Mildred Fish-Harnack and her husband Arvid Harnack at Genthiner Strasse 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 at right 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.
