The documentary is about the Rev. Waitsill and Martha Sharp (in the photo below), a Unitarian couple whose rescue of children and adults from Franco’s Spain and Nazi-occupied Europe was vital to the founding of the Unitarian Service Committee (USC), the predecessor of today’s Unitarian Universalist Service Committee (UUSC). In 2005, the Sharps were the second and third Americans to be honored for their work by Yad Vashem, the memorial to victims of the Holocaust in Jerusalem.
