This man was another war hero, just like Oscar Schindler. His name was Nicholas Winton.
Did he also save Jews?
He sure did. He was British but he cared enough about others to rescue 669 mostly Jewish children from Czechoslovakia.
I am assuming that they escaped on a train?
The operation was later known as Children’s transportation. Winton found homes for the children in Britain.
So he saved 699 lives. How great! Was he celebrated as a hero when the war ended?
Not really. He kept his actions secret for over 40 years before he told anyone.
In 2003, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Trains with Nicholas Winton’s children arrived in London at Liverpool Station. In the hall of the station, there is a statue of two children with an inscription in Czech, English, and German: For the child.
