n honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 60 Minutes looks back at Bob Simon’s 2014 profile of Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 children from the Nazis. An extraordinary story from the Second World War, a humanitarian story that didn’t come to light for decades. It concerns a young Londoner named Nicholas Winton who went to Prague, and ended up saving the lives of 669 children, mostly Jews, from almost certain death. His story begins in 1938, with Europe on the brink of war.
