18 April 2017. These are My Heroes…

____________________________________

On 17 April 1945, the Nazis executed Hannie Schaft, a brave Dutch communist antifascist fighter. Hannie… or the “Red-haired girl”… started her antifascist fight with small acts. She used to steal ID cards for Jewish residents. Upon leaving university, she joined the Raad van Verzet or “Council of Resistance”, a resistance movement that had close ties to the Communist Party of the Netherlands. Rather than act as a courier, Schaft wanted to work with weapons. She was responsible for sabotaging and assassinating various targets. She carried out various attacks on Germans and Dutch Nazis, collaborators, and traitors. The Nazis eventually arrested her at a military checkpoint in Haarlem on 21 March 1945, whilst distributing the illegal communist newspaper de Waarheid. After interrogation, torture, and solitary confinement, Dutch Nazi officials identified and assassinated Schaft on 17 April 1945.
