Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

You’re dying and it’s not fair. You did nothing to deserve being this sick. You have so much to live for you have so much purpose and someday soon you’ll be gone. I wish I could give you my life, I have no purpose and no reason to live. I’m not special but you are. The world wouldn’t miss me, but it would miss you, it needs you. You’re so important to me and I know I’ll loose you soon. I hate seeing you like this. I just wish you were better.
