Film Screening: "Defying the Nazis"
Join us at KG for a viewing of the documentary by Ken Burns and narrated by Tom Hanks (available on Netflix France)
Starting in 1939, a Massachusetts Unitarian minister, Waitstill Sharp, and his wife Martha helped hundreds of people escape from Nazi persecution in Czechoslovakia and in France. The Sharps are two of the only five Americans honored as Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem, and their names are inscribed on Le Mur des Justes in Paris.
Members of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Paris, an English-speaking liberal religious community, will present the film which will be followed by a discussion. The film is in English with no subtitles, but the discussion will be in both French and English.
