This is the story of the Czech Kindertransport and Sir Nicholas Winton. A remarkable man – still with us at the age of 104 saved 669 Jewish children from the Nazis between December 1938 and August 1939. Winton, then a British stockbroker, established the Czech Kindertransport and worked with a team in Prague to save the children, most of whose parents perished at Auschwitz. Winton raised money, organized transports, and when necessary, forged papers to save the children.
