Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War (2016) is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of WWII. It tells the story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to multiple life-threatening missions in Europe, including war-time Czechoslovakia. Over two dangerous years they helped to save hundreds of imperiled political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.
