TWO WHO DARED is the never-beforetold story of an American Minister and his wife who undertook a dangerous mission to save imperiled Jews and refugees in Europe at the onset of World War II.

Waitstill and Martha Sharp left their two young children and their home in the United States and traveled to Czechoslovakia. In their struggles to facilitate the clandestine transportation of refugees they fought political blockades, broke laws to secure exit visas for imperiled individuals and laundered money on the black market.

Over the course of their two missions to Prague then Southern France the Sharps and their underground network played a vital role in saving thousands.
