SIR NICHOLAS WINTON Nicolas Winton chartered 3 trains to rescue children in Czechoslovakia from Hitler’s Nazis in 1938. The children were taken to England where he organized for numerous families to adopt them. He saved the lives of 669 children this way. And these children had children who had children, and today, there are 7,000 people who would otherwise not be. Nicholas hid his story until his wife discovered it in a scrap book in their attic 50 years after the event occurred. She gave his scrap book to the BBC who honored him by sharing his work with the world in a public broadcast. In this video, Mr. Winton sits in an audience not knowing that the program is about him. He sits unaware that the people who surrounded him are the very children whose lives he saved 50 years earlier. The people who surround him do not know who Nicolas Winton is. They never met the man who saved their lives until now. No more needs to be said.
