Huntsville, TX (PRWEB) October 17, 2013
In February 1939, Waitstill Sharp, a young Unitarian minister from Boston, and his wife Martha left for Czechoslovakia on a refugee mission just days prior to the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia. Who were these American heroes? What drove their willingness to put the wellbeing of strangers over that of themselves and their family?
Two Who Dared: The Sharps’ War, a film that was ten years in the making, is now being released through a grassroots effort at churches, synagogues and theaters across the country and worldwide. Find out more at http://www.twowhodared.com
Of special note is the upcoming screening on Wednesday, October 23rd at 7:00 pm, when the Katy and E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center will screen the film. The screening is sponsored by the Thoreau Woods Unitarian Universalist Church of Hunstville, TX and is FREE & OPEN to the PUBLIC.
The Katy and E. Don Walker, Sr. Education Center is located at 1400 19th Street
Huntsville, Texas 77340.
