He Saved Over 600 Children During The Holocaust... And He Has No Clue They’re Right Next To Him

Sir Nicholas Winton, a world renowned humanitarian, organized the rescue and passage of about 669 primarily Jewish children from Czechoslovakia to Britain in an operation known as Czech Kindertransport during World War II. 50 years later, in 1988, Grete found a scrapbook from 1939 in their attic that had photos of the children, their names, letters to their parents, and various other documents. She was able to learn the full story.

Pretty incredible, right?
