John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. The following video is about Sir Nicholas Winton, who organised the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children in an operation known as the “Czech Kindertransport”. Winton also found homes for these children. The children who were rescued were destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II. Sir Winton never talked about his humanitarian acts to anyone after the war. His acts of sacrifice and kindness were discovered by his wife when she found a detailed scrapbook in his attic in 1988. The video below is a clip of a BBC Program “That’s Life” which aired in 1988.
