Organization Seeking Holocaust Survivors -

Nicholas Winton helped save close to 700 Czech children during the Holocaust. They have only been able to find about 250 of them and are actively seeking to find them. Most went to England, some to Sweden. If you have any possible information about these survivors, please contact the website.

Here's a movie about his life and work...

The Winton series continues – a feature documentary with dramatic reenactments NICKY’S FAMILY
In 2002, Matej Minác and Patrik Pašš produced a documentary NICHOLAS WINTON – THE POWER OF GOOD about the almost forgotten story of the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of WWII. The main protagonist of this story, now 102-year-old Sir Nicholas Winton, did not tell anyone about the rescue for more than 50 years – not even his wife.

Today, the story of the rescue is known all over the world. The English Queen Elisabeth II knighted Nicholas Winton and the U.S. House of Representatives honored him with a special resolution no. 583.

Tens of thousands of children saw the film The Power of Good within a school project that took place in various countries. Many children decided to continue in Winton’s footsteps and to do something good for the world. They started to organize various charity projects, helped save sick and malnourished children in Cambodia and Africa.
