First Unitarian Church of St. Louis to Show WWII Documentary, Two Who Dared, on October 19th.
Fourteen-year-old Artemis Joukowsky had no idea the heroic role his family played during World War II until he began to interview his grandparents, Martha and Waitstill Sharp, for a homework assignment on moral courage. Flash forward a few decades, and the documentary based on their humble recounting of the story, Two Who Dared: The Sharps' War, a film that was ten years in the making, is now being released through a grassroots effort at churches, synagogues and theaters across the country and worldwide.
