The Knight Who Saved 700 Jews

Nicky’s Family tells the story of Sir Nicholas Winton, whose efforts to provide homes for Czech children in England saved hundreds of lives. From Jewniverse.

Winton’s story was unknown even to his own family until 1988, when his wife found a scrapbook full of names and photos of the children he’d saved. She helped arrange a moving reunion on the popular BBC television show “That’s Life,” in which an unsuspecting Winton was introduced to some of the grateful (now adult) children.
