http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicholas_Winton In the months leading up to WWII, Nicholas Winton organized the repatriation of 669 Jewish children. The opening salvos of the holocaust were already being fired, and Jews were already being rounded up, placed in slums, already suffering. Nicholas Winton and others realized the urgency and tried to respond, to get these children to Britain, into the arms of families that would care for them, to safety. The day the war was launched, he was scheduled to move 250 more children, and was prevented because the train they were supposed to be on did not roll. This haunted him after the war. Those children died in concentration camps. He kept his work secret, didn't talk about it. It was discovered by his wife 50 years later, in some documents in their attic. It was rosters of those children he had managed to move out of Prague in the nick of time. And here is the surprise reunion with some of those children after all those years. Get a tissue, it's heartbreaking.
