Synopsis
Sir Nicholas Winton, a young Englishman, organized the rescue of 669 Jewish Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. As a result of his heroic efforts, today over 6,000 of their descendants live all over the world. Winton, now 104 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits would have probably been forgotten if his wife, fifty years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans. Now, the story of this rescue is beginning to be known outside England, and Winton was Knighted by the Queen Elizabeth II in recognition of his remarkable deed.
