Event

Reporting on the Times: The NY Times and the Holocaust/Two Who Dared
Two Who Dared: The Sharp's War
West Coast Premiere
Documentary/USA/76 minutes/2012
Directed by Artemis Joukowsky

The never before told story of Waitstill and Martha Sharp, an American minister and his wife who boldly committed to a life-threatening mission in Europe to help save imperiled Jews and refugees at the onset of World War II. In order to enable the clandestine transportation of refugees, they battled political and social blockades, broke laws to get imperiled individuals exit visas and laundered money on the black market. Over the course of two missions; in Prague (1939), and in Southern France (1940), the Sharps, and their underground confederates played a vital role in saving thousands from persecution.

Reporting on the Times: the New York Times and the Holocaust
Los Angeles Premiere
Directed by Emily Harrold
Short/USA/18 minutes/2012

Inspired by Laurel Leffs award winning book 'Buried by The Times,' this film explores how The New York Times handled reports of the Holocaust during World War II. It also explores why The Times, a Jewish owned newspaper, buried more than one thousand articles in its back pages. Was it simply an oversight? Or did the publishers and editors fear an American antisemitic backlash? Though interviews and testimony of a Holocaust survivor, historians, journalists, and American citizens who lived through World War II, the film also asks viewers to consider the power of the press in creating change.
