Sir Nicholas Winton who organised the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport.
Winton passed away in 2015 at the ripe old age of 106, but footage of Winton from a 1988 episode of the BBC’s That’s Life programme has recently been making the rounds online.
It`s the most touching video ever.
After his death in 2015, British Prime Minister David Cameron paid tribute to Sir Nicholas, tweeting: “The world has lost a great man. We must never forget Sir Nicholas Winton’s humanity in saving so many children from the Holocaust.”
