Northampton Peace Activist shares remarkable story of Sharps' courageous rescue of WWII refugees
Northampton, MA (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
Frances Crowe will host a free preview screening of Two Who Dared: The Sharps’ War in the Frances Crowe Community Meeting Room at the Media Education Foundation in Northampton, Massachusetts on Friday, December 21, 2012 at 7 pm.
Two Who Dared is the never-before-told story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, an American minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who boldly committed to a life-threatening mission in Europe to help save imperiled Jews and refugees at the onset of World War II. Leaving their two young children behind in the care of their parish, they worked tirelessly behind the scenes, using everything at their disposal, including the black market and the anti-Nazi underground, to bring as many of the oppressed to freedom as possible. The post-production film editor will be screening the film and will be available for questions and answers. Find out more at http://www.twowhodared.com.
