How do we look past our differences to help people in need? A group of community members get together to talk about how the show "Defying the Nazis: The Sharps' War" spoke to them through the example of a couple that went to Europe leading into World War II to help any way they could. That example of helping others who may be different and not share the same beliefs will then serve as a starting point for a conversation of how that can apply to us today, both locally and globally.
