Sir Nicholas Winton is one such a man. During the war, he organized “the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport.” —http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas…

The video below is from the BBC Program “That’s Life” aired in 1988. It’s a tribute to this remarkable man by some of the children that owe their lives to him. Watch for the surprise at the end.
