Nicholas Winton, the man called the British Schindler

Two surviving recipients, Sir Nicholas Winton and Denis Avey, will be given their medals in person while another 25 will be recognised posthumously. Mr Brown said all were ”true British heroes and a source of national pride for all of us” and should inspire future generations. Sir Nicholas Winton, who is now 100, organised the rescue of 669 mainly Jewish children by train from Prague in 1939
