SHERBORN – A Wellesley couple who traveled to Europe during World War II to rescue Holocaust victims was honored posthumously Saturday by the Peace Abbey, which added the couple to its Pacifist Memorial.
Martha and Waitstill Sharp are credited with saving hundreds, perhaps thousands of Jews and other Holocaust victims when they traveled to Prague, Czechoslovakia, in 1939, and then to Portugal during a second trip in 1940.
