Czech Republic, 2011
In 1939, Nicholas Winton ordered stationery and rubber stamps in the name of The British Committee for Refugees In Czechoslovakia, thus appointing himself the saviour of Jewish refugee children who would otherwise have been trapped. Winton’s impish chutzpah, combined with a steely willpower, made him their indomitable advocate.
Nicky’s Family utilises interviews with the children that were saved, now seniors themselves, along with footage of the survivor’s own families and archive footage of the Kindertransporte.
