(TruthSeekerDaily) Sir Nicholas Winton organized the rescue and passage to Britain of about 669 mostly Jewish Czechoslovakian children destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport.

After the war, Nicholas Winton didn’t tell anyone, not even his wife Grete about his wartime rescue efforts. In 1988, a half century later, Grete found a scrapbook from 1939 in their attic, with all the children’s photos, a complete list of names, a few letters from parents of the children to Winton and other documents. She finally learned the whole story.

In the video below, the survivors gathered to give him a wonderful surprise to honour his work in saving a future generation.

    What a wonderful surprise for a great man–and great he must surely be for there is greatness in goodness.

    What a wonderful reminder to the world as to what can be done by a single person with courage.

    May his story inspire many more ordinary people to do extraordinary things to help others.

    Thank you for sharing this powerfully moving post, Judy.

    God bless him. I have walked through Dachau–sat in a modified auditorium among the barracks to watch films about the horrors perpetuated there–and elsewhere, Auschwitz und so weiter–and it is the most bone chilling thing. The evil lives there still.

    What a hero. What an amazing, unsung–heretofore–hero. He is as God, for sure.
