Celebrating the LIFE of Sir Nicholas Winton

Posted by Elyse in Updates 01 Jul 2015

We join in mourning the death of Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved hundreds of children from Nazi persecution during WWII. He organized “kindertransport” trains to evacuate Czech children – most of them Jewish – to live out the war safely in the UK.

He died at the age of 106. Sir Winton’s motto was “If something is not impossible, then there must be a way to do it.” He lived a blessed life and we now say Baruch Dayan Emet in his memory, but his was a life well lived, and one that should be celebrated!!!
