'Britain's Schindler' Sir Nicholas Winton Dies Aged 106

Sir Nicholas Winton, who organised the rescue of Jewish children from the Holocaust in 1939, has died aged 106, his family said. Winton earned himself the label "Britain's Schindler" for saving the lives of 669 children by sending them from Prague to London by train.

He came to public attention only in 1988, when a family friend sent his scrapbook (which has details and photographs of the children he saved) to the BBC and he was reunited with some of those who call themselves "Nicky's Children" on an emotional episode of the programme That's Life!

His extraordinary story began in December 1938 when, as a 29-year-old stockbroker, he cancelled a skiing holiday and instead visited Prague at the request of a friend who urged him to be witness to the country's plight. The Nazis had invaded the Sudetenland two months earlier and the situation was becoming increasingly dangerous for Jews.
