Waterstones Says

Charting the story of Sir Nicholas Winton who in 1983 rescued hundreds of Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, this astounding biography written by his daughter stands as testament to the invaluable impact a single person's determination, decency and actions can have.

Sir Nicholas Winton rescued 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia at the brink of World War II. Most never saw their parents again; nearly all left behind were murdered. This is his story.

In 1938, 29-year-old 'Nicky' cancelled a ski holiday and instead spent nine months masterminding a seemingly impossible plan to rescue hundreds of Jewish children and find them homes in the UK. Over 6,000 people are alive today because of his efforts.

What motivated an ordinary man to do something so extraordinary? This book, written by his daughter, Barbara, explores the 106-year life of an incredible humanitarian, a man whose legacy only came to public light decades later.

His life story is a clarion call to choose action over apathy in the face of injustice, and a reminder that every one of us can change the world.
