Brenda Lewis knew when she headed to Prague in late August she was in for a rollercoaster ride of emotion, even though her mode of transport was a train. “I didn’t know what to expect except that it would be emotional,” said Lewis, of Guelph, whose father Heinze Laufer was one of the 667 children Nicholas Winton brought to safety. Laufer, who later changed his name to Henry Lewis, died on Christmas Eve in 2007. Brenda Lewis took the trip to honour her father.
