They saved many lives

WELLESLEY

A Unitarian minister from Wellesley and his wife will be honored today at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum for their heroics in saving Jews and other refugees from the Nazis.

Waitstill and Martha Sharp are only the second and third U.S. citizens named to an honor roll of 21,000 "righteous" gentiles, non-Jews who risked their lives to rescue Jews, the Washington Post reports today.
