A friend of mine turned me on to this incredible clip from 1988, aired by the BBC, telling of the heroics of Sir Nicholas Winton. Winton, shown front-and-center in this video, didn’t realize the people in the audience were all there for him, to say “thank you.”
Watch as he is introduced to one of them, and what unfolds. It’s as good as it gets. During World War II, he helped save hundreds of (mostly) Jewish Czechoslovakian children from Nazi death camps, organizing for their safe passage to Britain. Wow.
