Sir Nicholas Winton

What an extraordinary man! Thanks to CardsAsGifts for sending me the links to this story.  Sir Nicholas Winton is a guy who saw a great need and didn't decide that it was none of his business.  Just before the outbreak of the second world war, he managed to bring 669 Jewish children to safety in Great Britain.  He told hardly anyone about what he had done but he did keep an old scrapbook with the names of the children he had saved.  In the video below, he is sitting in the audience during the filming of a program about his work.  He doesn't know that sitting around him are the children he saved.


Then for the longer story, watch this one.
