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, 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.

I happened to watch this.
I’m not a fan of PBS and the fact that they use tax funding to put the “liberal viewpoint” down my craw.
I was totally humbled by the courage of these two people.
Wish that I could be as courageous as them.
