Hannie Schaft, circa 1939.

Hannie Schaft, a member of the Dutch resistance, bombed Nazi assets and assassinated high-level collaborators. She is the inspiration for "To Die Beautiful," a painstakingly-researched work of historical fiction. Boulder author Buzzy Jackson spoke with Ryan Warner at The Tattered Cover Book Store in Denver for the novel's release in June, 2023. The book won "Best Historical Fiction" at the recent Colorado Book Awards.
