Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War

Directed by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky, “Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War” tells the story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian Minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts who spent nearly two years on life-threatening missions in Europe. The couple left their children behind in the care of their parish to help save political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.

This event is in partnership with Touro Synagogue in recognition of Holocaust Remembrance Day.
