Defying The Nazis Film Screening at Loyola

  • Damen Student Center 6511 North Sheridan Road Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)

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 story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, a Unitarian minister and his wife from Wellesley, Massachusetts, who left their children behind in the care of their parish and boldly committed to multiple life-threatening missions in Europe. Over two dangerous years they helped to save hundreds of imperiled political dissidents and Jewish refugees fleeing the Nazi occupation across Europe.

Join Hillel at Loyola, Campus Ministry, SDMA, Student Transitions and Outreach, and Loyola's History Department in viewing this important film.

Located in the Damen Den at the Damen Student Center
