DEFYING THE NAZIS :
THE SHARPS’ WAR
A documentary by Ken Burns
Sunday 21 January at 3pm at Kehilat Gesher
In 1939, a Massachusetts Unitarian minister, Waitstill Sharp, and his wife Martha started helping hundreds of people escape from Nazi persecution in Czechoslovakia and in France. This documentary, created by Ken Burns and narrated by Tom Hanks, premiered on the PBS network in the US in September 2016.
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.
Dorothy Erlandson and her fellow 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.
