601) Hannie Schaft

Jannetje Johanna (Jo) Schaft (1920 – 1945). Dutch communist resistance fighter during World War II. Her secret name in the resistance movement was Hannie.

- "Auburn-haied Hannie Schaft was born Jannetje Johanna Schaft... She was a shy child, perhaps because she was teased by schoolmates for her reddish-brown hair and freckles, or perhaps because her parents became protective oh Hannie after the death of her older sister."…

- "She became known as the girl with the red hair (in Dutch Het meisje met het rode haar, also the title of a book and film about her)."
