sharpsBefore there was the People’s Church refugee team, there was Martha and Waitstill Sharp.  ‘Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War,’ a new documentary film by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky tells to story of an American Unitarian couple who spent two years during the Second World War on life-threatening missions in Europe to save refugees and dissidents from the Nazis. This documentary is tentatively scheduled to air on PBS at 9pm on September 20th. (This time and date cannot be confirmed as of press time—please check local listings.) Tune in and learn about Unitarian’s long legacy of supporting refugees.
