A true hero – Image #135

Does the name Nicholas Winton mean anything to you? Chances are it doesn’t, but it should.  He played a huge part in helping hundreds of Jewish children escape from Germany and almost certain death more than 70 years ago by arranging what became known as the kindertransport. There’s been a memorial service to him today in London, attended by some of those he saved.  He didn’t see what he did as heroic or special, but I think it was. He should be an inspiration to all.
