Sir Nicholas Winton saved children during the Holocaust – this video moved me to tears

Share

A friend facebooked this video and I had to share it. Especially as we celebrate the freedom of summer and family.

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakian children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. This is a clip of a video where Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people whom he saved 50 years before. He has no idea who is sitting next to him.
