Professional Reviews:

"...it's an interesting story from start to finish. Of course, with Ken Burns at the helm you know you're in for a solid film experience, and that's exactly what this is." - Albany Times Union

4 out of 4 stars
"Combining rare photographs, archival footage, and dramatic recreations, together with a wealth of expert interviews and the writings of the Sharps (voiced here by Tom Hanks and Marina Goldman), this riveting film tells an inspiring story of heroism and sacrifice during the World War II years. Highly recommended. Editor's Choice." - Video Librarian

Description

  • Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War

    DEFYING THE NAZIS: THE SHARPS' WAR tells the never-before-told 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 save scores of imperiled dissidents and refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.

    During this time, the Sharps would face harrowing encounters with Nazi police, narrowly escape arrest and watch as the Third Reich invaded Eastern Europe. Their marriage would be tested severely and the two children they left behind would grow saddened by their parents' absence. But dozens of scientists, journalists, doctors, powerful anti-Nazi activists and children would find their way to freedom and start new lives in America because of their efforts and sacrifice.
