No words. Just remember.

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. This video is the BBC Programme “That’s Life” aired in 1988. The most touching video ever.

And whoever saves a life, it is considered as if he saved an entire world

    I read about Sir Nicholas back in 2009. It was one of my earliest blog posts. He saved hundreds of children, and passed away in 2015 at the age of 106.
    He was honored when the recreated the journey of one of his trains, and he met with a number of those children, now adults, who took that trip again with him and their own families.

    Damn it! It’s to early to peel onions.

    Such men represent what President Lincoln called, “The better angels of our nature.”

    Father Jim

    I never got the chance to thank you. My late wife’s mother, and her family, thank you for your kindness…and I will never forget that in my worst time, the Rotties were here for all of us.

    God bless you, dear brother!

    Fayjer Jim may I ask: You’re a Jehovahs Witness? I ask only because there is a delightful pair of Witnesses I meet at the station every day, and they are gentle, kind..and we have had some conversations about grief and faith…every time they see me they ask how I am doing and how I am coping.

    Sir….if there is one thing I am learning, it’s that God sends more than one angel in disguise to those that need them.

    I am not Jehovah’s Witness myself, but like you, I see angels in uncommon places 🙂
