Mildred Fish-Harnack of Madison, Wisconsin

...This woman was murdered twice, once at Hitler's request (and as thus, the only such American woman), and the second time by the cold war hysteria (a la Joe McCarthy), as key data was deliberately overlooked in order to try to pursue Communists among us.

Here's a new commemorative video, showing Mildred's translations of Goethe and especially showcasing her romance -- with her German, and with Germany.

It's quite a fine story.
