Documentary 'Sharp's War' to screen Monday

The Rogue Valley Unitarian Universalist Fellowship will show the film "Sharps' War" at 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 6, at the fellowship, 87 Fourth St., Ashland.

The film by Ken Burns and Artemis Joukowsky tells the story of Waitsall and Martha Sharp, an American Unitarian minister and his wife who left their Wellesley parish and spent two dangerous years helping scores of Jews and refugees flee Nazi occupation across Europe.

A discussion will follow, in which Dave Baker shares his family's special relationship with the Sharps.

This will be the first in a quarterly film series called Social Justice and Action. For more information, call 541-482-4755 or go to rvuuf.org.
