1 The man who saved lives from Holocaust
In 1938, Sir Nicholas Winton was just a young 29 year old stockbroker from London who was enjoying holidays in Switzerland when he received a call from his friend Martin Blake who asked him to come to Prague immediately for an assignment. The time in 1938 was the height of the Nazi regime and Nazis had just annexed a huge part of western Czechoslovakia and had prepared for the bloody war against the German and Austrian Jews. Winton knew he had to help thousands of children from Prague and when he asked the British embassy for help, he found out that he had to families willing to take in a child and a fee of 50 pounds was to be deposited to the home office.
