August 27 / 7:00 pm
Presentation
Nicky Winton's Kindertransport

What inspired a 29-year-old stockbroker to give up his winter skiing holiday to rescue 669 children from a foreign country?

The Kindertransport from Czechoslovakia lasted less than nine months yet had a profound impact on many. For 105-year-old Sir Nicholas Winton, it was a short but defining interlude.

Nick Winton, son of Sir Nicholas Winton, will recount the story of the Kindertransport from an insider’s perspective, reflecting his father’s unique personal story, which transformed the lives of so many people.
