They helped form a small rebel group the Nazis called the Red Orchestra. The Gestapo decoded their radio messages in and arrested Harro at the end of August. They came for Libertas eight days later. Both she and her husband were sentenced to death for espionage and treason.
Pommer could see that he had been hanged and Libertas had been decapitated by guillotine. On a third table, Pommer identified Arvid Harnack, another member of the Red Orchestra who had been a key informant for the American Embassy as well as the Soviets.
In the s, Harnack had studied economics as a Rockefeller Fellow at the University of Wisconsin, where he wandered into a literature class by mistake and met a young American teaching assistant named Mildred Fish.
They were caught in the same Gestapo operation that ensnared the Schulze-Boysens. That talk became my guiding star. Before he was executed, Arvid wrote to his family about his joy that her life had been spared.
But Hitler refused to accept the sentence, and Mildred, too, would be beheaded on his order two months later. I could barely follow. Libertas Schulze-Boysen was 29 when she died.

Beginning inall 31 anatomy departments in the territory the Third Reich occupied—including Poland, Austria, and the Czech Republic as well as Germany—accepted these corpses.
The tainted origins of this research—along with other studies and education that capitalized on the Nazi supply of human body parts—continue to haunt German and Austrian science, which is only now fully grappling with the implications.
Some of the facts, amazingly, are still coming to light. This history matters for its own sake. It also matters for debates that remain unresolved—about how anatomists get bodies and what to do with research that is scientifically valuable but morally disturbing.
The idea that women rarely or never get pregnant from rape. For centuries, anatomists around the globe struggled to find an adequate supply of bodies. The need was keen—without corpses, there could be no dissection for research and medical training.
In France, the bodies of poor people who died in hospitals were used widely in the s.
An law in Britain permitted access to the unclaimed bodies of anyone who died in a prison or workhouse. In the United States, medical students robbed graves, often of African-Americans.
