You’ve heard of Oscar Schindler, but have you heard of Sir Nicholas Winton?
Winton organized the rescue of 669 mostly Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia on the eve of the Second World War, in an operation later known as the Czech Kindertransport. Winton found homes for the children and arranged for their safe passage to Britain. The British press has dubbed him the “British Schindler.”
Despite his heroics, Winton never spoke of his heroism.
Fifty years later, he comes face-to-face with 80 people whose young lives were saved as a result of his bravery.
