Two Who Dared

After seventeen ministers declined the Unitarian Association’s request for relief volunteers in Europe, Waitstill and Martha were the eighteenth call. When they committed to the dangerous undertaking, they left their young children in Wellesley to travel to Czechoslovakia at the onset of WWII. In the clandestine transportation of refugees, they combatted political and social blockades, broke laws to get exit visas and laundered money on the black market. The Sharps, and their underground confederates played a vital role in saving thousands from persecution. They are two of only three Americans to ever be honored by Israel as Righteous Among the Nations at Yad Vashem.
