Man Who Saved 669 Kids From The Nazis Gets Surprise Welcome From All Of Them

Meet Sir Nicholas George Winton.

Mr. Winton organized the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children. These children were absolutely destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II.


The operation was known as Czech Kindertransport. The peculiar and most noble turn of this story is when we find out Nicholas Winton purposefully didn’t tell anyone about Czech Kindertransport, not even his wife Grete about his rescue efforts.

How did she find out? How was the story uncovered? It’s quite interesting.

In 1988, Grete found a scrapbook from 1939 in their attic, with all the children’s photos, a complete list of names, a few letters from parents of the children to Winton and other documents.
