Mildred Harnack: Together with her husband she formed a resistance group to oppose Hitler, which later was dubbed the "Red Orchestra" by the Nazis. The group passed on intelligence to the Americans (1938-41) and the Soviets (1935, 1940-42). On Hitler's orders, Mildred Harnack was executed at Plötzensee on February 16, 1943. She was the only American woman sentenced to death on direct orders of Adolph Hitler.

Franca Viola (born in Sicily 1947) was kidnapped and raped in 1965 by a member of the local mafia, Filippo Melodia.

Viola's behavior became a symbol of the cultural progress and the emancipation of women in post-war Italy.
