In 1939, on the eve of World War ll, a young British man did something that 669 people will never be able to forget, and we sincerely hope they never do.

Nicholas Winton saved 669 people, mainly children, from Czechoslovakia during the holocaust, by doing the unimaginable. He ensured the safe passage to Britain, and made sure everyone made it there alive and well.

And like the true here he was, he never spoke of it again, until almost 50 years later, when his wife found a scrapbook in the attic containing all of the names, pictures and documents of the children he saved.

Winton then received a special surprise in 1988, when he was invited to be an audience member of a television program called “That’s Life!” But that wasn’t all. Little did he know, that the people sitting around him were only alive because of his bravery. He was stunned, and he definitely was touched that they all were there.

Then in 2003, Nicholas Winton was knighted by Queen Elizabeth ll, and received the Czech Order of the White Lion back in 2014. Sadly, he passed away in 2015, but his great deeds will NEVER be forgotten. He saved the lives of many, and that’s something that should always be remembered.
