A small way for a big woman.
To me until recently completely unknown Cato is considered a great German resistance against the regime, which called itself the "3rd Reich".
Her name and her work deserve to be known.
Born in 1920, she was executed at the age of twenty-three in 1943 in Berlin Plötzensee.
Cato grew up in Fischerhude and met Otto Modersohn and his sons here ...

Nestled between the many arms of the Wümme lies the artist village Fischerhude. Many trees give the place a special charm and for that reason it is also called island forest village.
Romantic, rural and quiet, the small village shows and is absolutely worth a visit.

Moor and Geest, forest and heath, dunes and pastures: The wide meadow landscape around Ottersberg impresses with its great diversity. Embedded in rows of trees from old alders and oaks is the small town of Fischerhude (mentioned in documents already in 1124), which is also known as the "island forest village" and only became a parish in 1852. The special feature of the idyillian environment are the many arms of the Wümme, which run through the wetland and river landscape. Even today, the many old farms are reminiscent of the wealthy peasants, who came to wealth through eel and haymaking. Numerous old duck houses, boathouses and footbridges make ubiquitous past traditions.Worth a visit.Further information: fischerhude.com/Startseite.html

Fischerhude is a picturesque village in the middle of a beautiful meadow landscape, characterized by old trees and cobbled streets. Its old houses and the atmosphere of artistic bohemian make Fischerhude a treasure chest worth a visit in every season.
Fischerhude is located on the Radfernweg Hamburg - Bremen.
Visible in my opinion is the Otto Modersohn Museum, which is usually open daily from 10-18 clock has modersohn-museum.de
To be continued
You can have a nice break in the garden of Gasthof Berkelmann, which is located next to the small, beautiful church.
