Film Screening - Sharp's War
Join Meadville Lombard Theological School, Unity Temple Congregational Action Network, and UT member and WTTW Senior Producer and Moderator, Dan Andries, for a compelling discussion with filmmaker Artemis Joukowsky. 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 and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Wellesley, MA, who left their children in the care of their congregation and committed to life-threatening missions in Europe. Over two years they helped save hundreds of political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi persecution.
