In 1939, Rev. Waitstill Sharp, a Unitarian minister in Wellesley, Massachusetts, and his wife, Martha, a social worker, agreed to travel to Prague to investigate reports of a humanitarian crisis. A new documentary by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky, Defying the Nazis: The Sharps’ War, tells the riveting story of the Sharps’ work in Europe during World War II.
Harvard Divinity School is proud to present a screening of the film and a panel discussion placing the Sharps’ efforts in a larger historical context of modern refugee crises. The film screening begins at 4 pm, followed by the panel discussion at 5:45 pm, which will be streamed live below.
Panelists include producer and co-director Artemis Joukowsky, HDS professor Kevin Madigan, Amber Moulton of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee, and Sana Mustafa, an activist and Syrian refugee. It will be moderated by HDS professor Dan McKanan.
