WWII rescue train trip recreated

Posted on September 4, 2009

From the BBC: A train carrying evacuees who escaped the Holocaust has been met in the UK by the man who arranged their rescue ahead of the start of World War II. It marks the 70th anniversary of trains organized by Sir Nicholas Winton that carried 669 mostly Jewish children to the UK. In a speech to several hundred people gathered at the station, Sir Nicholas told the former evacuees: “It’s wonderful to see you all after 70 years. Don’t leave it quite so long until we meet here again.”
