London stockbroker saved hundreds of children from the Nazis.

  • Sir Nicholas Winton organised the transport of 669 children to the UK
  • Without him, they would almost certainly have been killed by the Nazis
  • Almost all of their parents went on to die in Nazi concentration camps
  • He forged documents and bribed officials before he could get them out
  • Winton, who is now 105, kept his story quiet for nearly 50 years
  • Even the children he transported did not know he had saved them
  • Now the Czech Republic will honour him for saving its children

The British man who saved hundreds of Jewish children from the Holocaust, seventy-six years later, was given the highest honour of the Czech Republic at 105 years of age. [01] 

This is his inspiring story.
