WWII Child Survivors Honor their Savior, Sir Nicholas Winton

Very touching story and short video.

As World War II was brewing in Europe, one man, Sir Nicholas Winton, worked in secret to sneak 669 children out of German-occupied Czechoslovakia to safety in England in an operation later known as the Czech Kindertransport. Winton found homes for them and arranged for their safe passage to Britain.

Years later, his wife was going through the attic and discovered the documents detailing her husbands heroism and sent them to the BBC. They then organized this event to honor one of the greatest, humblest, and most inspirational men who’s ever been born. Sir Nicholas Winton.

The people he helped honor one of the greatest men who ever lived
