Special Nicholas Winton programme

From December 1938 to September 1939, an English stockbroker called Nicholas Winton organised six trains from Prague to London, carrying almost 700 mostly Jewish children to safety as the Nazis occupied Czechoslovakia. For fifty years he told no-one - not even his own wife - about what he had done, and it was only in 1988 that the story was rediscovered and he was reunited with "his" children. This week, looks back at the remarkable story of Nicholas Winton and the kindertransports. Nicholas Winton with a Jewish childNicholas Winton with a Jewish child
