A gripping documentary about the courage and determination of a young English man, Nicolas Winton, who saved the lives of 669 children during the Holocaust. Between March 13 and August 2, 1939, Nicholas Winton organized 8 transports to take children from Prague to new homes in Great Britain, and kept it a secret until in 1988 when his wife discovered a scrapbook documenting his heroic mission. Winton "had an intuition" about the fate of the Jews when he visited Prague in 1939 and he quietly but decisively got down to the business of saving lives. We learn how only two countries, Sweden and Britain, answered his call to harbor the young refugees; how documents had to be forged; and how once foster parents signed for the children on delivery, it was the last he saw of them.
Hanna Slone, one of the 669 children, will host a Q&A following the film.
