Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War
May 25, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the story of Waitstill & Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to multiple life-threatening missions in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save hundreds of imperiled political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.
Followed by discussion with film director Artemis Joukousky, grandson of the Sharps.
Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 for Mountain Lake PBS Members.
