Episode #35: Sir Nicholas Winton and the Kindertransport to Freedom
The Czech Republic honored Sir Nicholas Winton with the Order of the White Lion in October of 2014. This 105-year-old U.K. citizen received this award for his work to rescue 669 Czech children from the growing dangers of Nazi Germany in 1938 and '39. Today, over 6000 individuals can, in part, thank their existence to Sir Winton and the others to organize eight trains to freedom for Jewish and gentile children.
