Sir Nicholas Winton

1possible

In honor of Sir Nicholas Winton and his quiet heorism. May his memory be eternal. It was only after Nicholas Winton’s wife found a scrapbook in 1988 that he spoke of his all-but-forgotten work rescuing 669 children who were destined for Nazi concentration camps and extermination. “I didn’t really really keep it secret,” he once said. “I just didn’t talk about it.” Now I want to read all about it in this book.
