Director: Matej Minac, UK, Czech Republic, 2013, 96 minutes, English (Rescheduled due to snow!) The heartwarming, true story of Britains Schindler, Nicholas Winton, who organized the rescue of 669 Czech children, most of them Jewish, with his own personal kindertransports, just before the outbreak of World War II. Winton never spoke of these events with anyone for 50 years. It was not until his wife Greta unearthed an old briefcase full of documents that the story was revealed. Since then, hundreds of Wintons children, now in their 70s and 80s, have been found and to this day his family has grown to almost 6000 people.*Eva Paddock, a Winton Child will speak about her own amazing story following the film. She and her sister were on the last kindertransport to leave Prague before the start of WWII.
