This 75-minute documentary is the story about Martha & Rev. Waitstill Sharp who left the safety of their home in Wellesley, Massachusetts and flew to war-torn Europe in 1939. They risked their lives to help feed, shelter, and rescue thousands of refugees, including anti-Nazi dissidents and Jews.
In 2005, the Sharps were honored by Israel as “Righteous Among the Nations” for their strength of character and heroism in their six-year mission to rescue Jews and other refugees from Nazi persecution. Only one other American has been so honored.
Discussion to follow.
