Preview Screening: Defying the Nazis: The Sharps War

Sunday, September 11, 2016 at 6:30 PM

Alys Stephens Center, Birmingham AL

Ken Burns' new film, Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War, is an account of a daring rescue mission that occurred on the precipice of World War II. It tells the previously untold story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, an American minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to a life-threatening mission in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save scores of imperiled Jews and refugees fleeing Nazi occupation across Europe.

This event is free and open to the public. The screening will include a panel discussion featuring director Artemis Joukowsky via Skype and will be followed by a reception.
