British “Schindler” to meet children he saved

Posted on September 3, 2009

LONDON – British war hero Nicholas Winton, who helped evacuate hundreds of Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia before World War II, will meet on Friday some of the people he saved from Hitler’s death camps. He managed to bring 669 mostly Jewish children on eight trains to Britain through Germany in 1939 but the ninth train with 250 children never left Prague because the war broke out. None of the 250 children on board was ever seen again.
