For the past 35 years Wisconsin has marked September 16th as Mildred Fish-Harnack day in Wisconsin public schools.
Come celebrate the life of Wisconsinite Mildred Fish Harnack, alum of MHSA and UW-Madison. She was tortured and guillotined by the gestapo for her resistance to fascism in Berlin. Meet and eat with members of the DSA, Cooperation Milwaukee, Milwaukee Turners, anti-fascists, supporters and friends, while we connect her life and lessons to actions being committed today.
BBQ, Cupcakes, Talk and Bella Ciao!
Boswell Books is also having a book talk on the 23rd, hosted by biographer Rebecca Donner – Mildred Fish Harnack’s Great grandniece.
