A new documentary tells the story of Nicholas Winton, a British stockbroker who saved the lives of 669 Czechoslovakian children through the Kindertransport in 1939. Audiences in Los Angeles have a unique opportunity to see the film and meet Dave Lux, one of the children he saved, this Sunday.

When Barbara Winton visited USC Shoah Foundation last week, it wasn’t just the testimonies that talk about how her father saved hundreds of lives during the Holocaust that impressed her – it was how these testimonies are being used to educate the next generation.

I first met Sir Nicholas Winton when he had reached the mere age of 87. He was curious to learn about the UK Holocaust Centre, which our family had opened in Nottinghamshire. Winton was intrigued to learn that a non-Jewish family established the center, which resonated with his own ethics, as a Holocaust rescuer who saved 669 Jewish children by organizing the Czechoslovakian Kindertransport.
