Defying the Nazis: The Sharp’s War airs on Sept 20th at 9pm on PBS. It’s a new documentary co-directed by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky about a little-known but important mission by an American minister and his wife from Wellesley MA to rescue refugees and dissidents in Europe before and after the start of World War II.
The story is compelling but the reason it is my friday favourite is because my very good friend Marina Goldman is the voice of Martha Sharp, alongside Tom Hanks as Waitstill Sharp!
Marina has boundless energy, unlimited talent and compassion to spare! Check out the trailer here and tune in on Sept 20th for the documentary.
