Digital presentation - Waitstill Sharp, a Unitarian minister from Massachusetts, and his wife Martha, a social worker, helped feed and shelter thousands of refugees and assisted anti-Nazi dissidents and Jews as they escaped to safety, first in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and later in France. The Sharps were recognized as Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem—the highest recognition accorded by the state of Israel to non-Jews who risked their lives to save Jews during the World War II. The Sharps’ compelling story reveals a largely unknown chapter of Holocaust history and provides a new perspective on America’s relationship to it.

This film is presented in partnership with the Denver Film Society and is the second in our Facing History Film Series: Exploring Justice in the Classroom.
