Storyline

It is 1939 and Europe is on the brink of war. Hitler has invaded Czechoslovakia, threatening the lives of the Jewish population. Nicholas Winton, a young British stockbroker, decides he will do everything possible to save the lives of as many Jewish children as he can. This film tells the extraordinary story of how Nicholas Winton rescued 669 children from the clutches of the Nazis, bringing them by train to Britain. In order to provide a degree of credibility with both the British and Nazi governments of the day, Nicholas single-handedly established the British Committee for Refugees from Czechoslovakia - Children's Section, using it to obtain passports and visas for the children. He then organised for each child to be adopted by families throughout the country and their safe passage across Europe and into Britain. For nearly fifty years, Nicholas told no-one of his heroic deeds. His incredible story might never have come to light were it not for his wife who, fifty years later, ... Written by full-option

A great Man
4 February 2016 | by anne648See all my reviews

At 68 years old I can say without a doubt this is one of the greatest Documentaries I have ever watched. A really humble man who was an unsung hero.

Sir Nicholas Winton has now passed but I am glad his, and his supporters, story has been told.

The drama of this must never be forgotten.

i was unaware of the Statue erected to these children in Liverpool Street Srtation and i have requested my Brother-In-law to get a photograph of it. This is a great memorial.

My sincere thanks for this Documentary.
