Film screening about little-known Holocaust story

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin Public Television has created a documentary about a Milwaukee native who was the only American woman to be executed on direct orders of Adolf Hitler.

The film is called “Wisconsin’s Nazi Resistance” and it’s about Mildred Fish Harnack. There will be a free screening Thursday at the Jewish Museum Milwaukee.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Joel Waldinger, the film’s producer, and others.

Wisconsin Public Television and Milwaukee Public Television will premiere the documentary statewide Nov. 7.

The museum is also hosting a special exhibit called “Mildred Fish Harnack: The Story of a Wisconsin Woman’s Resistance,” which will run through Nov. 27.
