What an inspiration? Every pupil should see this video! Warning! Your eyes may water! 

This is a video that shows Sir Nicholas Winton from a BBC Programme called “That’s Life” aired in 1988. I actually remember the programme being aired and feeling very inspired by the courage and poignancy of the story. This would make a great form time video or starter to a history lesson on WWII.

In 1939, a 29 year old stockbroker rescued 669 Czechoslovakian children before the Nazi invasion. Amazingly after the war, he told no one. However, in 1988, his wife discovered the scrapbook in their attic with all of the children listed.

Below is  a clip from “That’s Life” with Sir Nicholas Winton, tissues at hand as it may get emotional.
