-and ends up with 15,000 children.
At Christmastime 1938, Nicholas Winton cancelled ski trip in Switzerland to help his friend with a humanitarian project in Prague. Through creativity, and the motto that “if something is not impossible, then there must be a way to do it,” Sir Winton single-handedly figured out a way to transport 659 Jewish children from peril of Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia to safety in the UK.
The story alone is incredible-Sir Winton was knighted and essentially saved 15,000 lived (the children and descendants of the children he saved).
Even more remarkable? He continues to do good-at 105.
Unbelievable. Sir Winton’s been instrumental in the development of Abbeyfield senior communities and he just keeps going.
A truly beautiful story and an incredible life.
