 In 1938, twenty-nine-year-old Sir Nicholas Winton was preparing to take a vacation when he received a call from a friend who told him that he was leaving for Prague and needed his help. Winton didn’t hesitate and changed his plans. In Prague, he learned about the refugees fleeing Hitler’s army and about the many children who were in danger of losing their lives. Winton decided to take action and by September 1939, he managed to arrange visas and admission to British families for nearly 700 Central European mostly Jewish children. After the War, he returned to his private life and never mentioned this incident. Fifty years later, his wife found a scrapbook full of documents and transport plans….

Award-winning team Director Matej Minac and production partner Patrik Pass present a moving portrait of a man who took heroic risks during wartime to save the lives of others. Today, 102-year-old Nicholas Winton is unbelievably active and still engaged in charity work. He is surrounded by his children, his grandchildren, and of course, all of his rescued “children” who today represent almost 6,000 people. “To remember only historical facts is not enough. We should concentrate more on the positive side of history and thus learn kindness, love, honesty, morality and mutual help and compassion” (Nicholas Winton, 2009).
