Sir Nicholas Winton, the incredible man who took it upon himself to save 667 Czech children from the Nazis, passed away on July 1st at the age of 105. His was definitely a life well lived, and a lesson to the rest of us for what we have the potential to do and become.
Here he is, surprised to find himself in an audience filled with some of the people he rescued:
I only wish that the Nobel Peace Prize had been awarded to him this year, before he passed away. If any man deserved it, he did.
There’s a terrific movie about his life called Nicky’s Family, available here from Menemsha Films. If you want to uplift yourself, by all means, see it:
RIP, Sir Nicholas!
