Two Who Dared: The Sharps’ War, a documentary film that was ten years in the making, is now being released through a grassroots effort at churches, synagogues and theaters worldwide. TWO WHO DARED tells the story of a Unitarian minister, Waitstill Sharp and his wife Martha who, just days prior to the Nazi invasion of Czechoslovakia, left their young children in Wellesley, Massachusetts to help save thousands being persecuted in Eastern Europe.

The film will be previewed in the next few days at the following locations and many more screenings are planned throughout the country in the coming weeks.

The film will have its official premiere at the Boston International Film Festival on April 14th at 1 pm at the Loews / AMC Cineplex in Boston. Attend any of these screenings and dare to be inspired by this remarkable story of courage and sacrifice.

Who were these American heroes? What drove their willingness to put the wellbeing of strangers over that of themselves and their family? What would you dare to do in order to help just one other person?

In February 1939, Waitstill Sharp, a young Unitarian minister from Boston, and his wife Martha left for Czechoslovakia on a refugee mission. The Unitarian church was already a step in front of the Nazis, having set up a secretive network of volunteers and agencies to secure the safe passage of both Jews and non-Jews out of Prague. The task became even more difficult when on March 15, 1939 the Nazis entered Prague. For the next five months, the Sharps continued their work undaunted by the presence of the Gestapo and the possibility that they would be arrested or killed. In August 1939, the couple left Prague and headed back to the United States, barely escaping arrest.

Only 10 months later, the Sharps returned to Europe on their second mission, setting up a refugee office in Lisbon, Portugal. Eventually, they made their way to Nazi-controlled France, to find ways to help refugees escape. In an elaborate plan, the Sharps helped a renowned German-Jewish author, Lion Feuchtwanger, and his wife escape to New York via Spain. Finally, in December 1940, after rescuing a plethora of people from the horrors of Nazi persecution, Waitstill and Martha Sharp returned to the United States. Following the war, Martha Sharp remained very active in efforts to assist the Jews around the world and the establishment of Israel.

Director Artemis Joukowsky is proud to present this remarkable story of courage, documenting the lives of Reverend Waitstill Sharp and his wife Martha as told from the point of view of Martha and Waitstill, drawing on their recorded interviews, letters and unpublished memoirs. The film also includes interviews with children rescued and noted scholars.

TWO WHO DARED: THE SHARPS' WAR is a project of No Limits Media, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization. Founded in 2001, No Limits Media (NLM) is a multimedia development and production company dedicated to informing and entertaining the estimated 20% of the U.S. population that directly lives with a disability.
