yellowstarThis service is led by Rev. Phyllis B. O’Connell.  So many people turned away or were indifferent to the genocide of the Holocaust, but many stepped up and some risked their own lives to save others.  UU minister Waitstill Sharp and his wife Martha were two of the people who, at great risk, helped rescue Jews and others from Nazi occupied countries.
