After seventeen ministers declined the Unitarian Association’s request for relief volunteers in Europe, Waitstill and Martha Sharp were the eighteenth call. In the clandestine transportation of refugees, they combated political and social blockades, broke laws to get exit visas and laundered money on the black market. The Sharps, and their underground confederates played a vital role in saving thousands from persecution.
