    FILM SYNOPSIS

    In 1939, Sir Nicholas Winton personally and by his own initiative saved the lives of 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and brought them across Hitler’s Germany to Britain. For nearly 50 years, he told no one of his incredible operation. The story only emerged in 1988, after Sir Nicholas’ wife found an old scrapbook in their attic, featuring pictures of the children Sir Nicholas had rescued.

    Today he is often called “Britain’s Schindler.” Winton is an immensely compelling symbol of how the care of one man can truly make a difference in the lives of many.

Nicholas Winton’s fascinating story continues to inspire people to make the world a better place.

    “If something isn’t blatantly impossible,
    there must be a way of doing it.”

    —Sir Nicholas Winton
