About the Film
Two Who Dared is the previously untold story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian couple who left their young children in Wellesley, Massachusetts to help save imperiled refugees being persecuted in Europe, just days prior to the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia. Told from the personal point of views of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, the film draws on recorded interviews, letters and unpublished memoirs, and includes interviews with noted scholars and rescued children.
