In 1938, Nicholas Winton, a young London stockbroker, traveled to Prague to rescue 669 Jewish children from the impending Holocaust. He arranged their transport across Europe, got them admitted into England, and set up an agency to find families for them to live with during the war.

Sir Nicholas was 106.

I would expect that a special place has already been set up in Heaven for Sir Nicholas.


RIP indeed.

Sir Nicholas had a French counterpart, who passed away on Dec. 28, also at a ripe old age.
