Sir Nicholas Winton - BBC Programme "That's Life" aired in 1988

This is touching and a great testimony of what one person can do.

He saved 669 children during the Holocaust…and he doesn't know they're sitting next to him.

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. This video clip is of Sir Nicholas Winton when he discovers he is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people he saved 50 years before.
