NATICK — Members of Temple Israel wiped away tears, bowed their heads, and nervously fumbled with empty coffee cups as they watched a short film clip showing women and children standing behind barbed wire.
Eva Rosemary Feigl, a Jewish child growing up in Vienna, Austria, during Hitler’s reign of terror, was one of those who did not perish in the Holocaust due to the courageous and unselfish acts of the Rev. Waitstill Sharp and his wife Martha Dickie Sharp.
“It is estimated that my grandparents and the Unitarian Service Committee (today called the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee), saved more than 2,000 people,” said the Sharps’ grandson, Artemis Joukowsky III at the temple breakfast meeting.
