SAVING ONE SAVES MANY

Sir Nicholas Winton was a stockbroker in 1938 when Hitler's troops began to march into Czechoslovakia. In his gut he knew that something evil was underfoot. He quit his job as a stockbroker and began to charter trains, raise money, and transport Jewish children out of Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and Poland. Because of him, 699 Jewish children escaped what would have been imminent death in Nazi prison camps.

Vera Gissing, one of the 699 children who escaped remarked, "He did not only save 699, he saved a generation. We have had children and grandchildren. Because of him, there are about 7,000 of us alive."
