"Anything that is not actually impossible can be done, if one really sets one's mind to do it and is determined that it shall be done."
- Sir Nicholas Winton

Just before the outbreak of World War II, 29-year-old London stockbroker, Nicholas Winton started hearing from friends in Prague that Jews were losing their jobs and their homes. A Christian with Jewish roots, he traveled to Prague to see what was happening.

Between March and August 1939, he arranged the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children. But his heroic actions remained a secret. For more than half a century, Winton did not speak about his unselfish act with anyone, not even his wife.  It wasn't until his wife, Greta, unearthed an old leather briefcase containing lists of the children, letters from their parents and details of their evacuations that his secret was revealed.  

Since his story was made public, Winton's "children" have been found and his "family" now numbers almost 6,000.  "Nicky's Family" is the story of a man who took great risks 70 years ago and continues to inspire us all to make today's world a better place.
