One day while Mr. Winton’s wife was rummaging through some boxes, she found a notebook kept by her husband. Inside this notebook was the names of Jewish children he had saved during the Holocaust.
His deeds went unnoticed for decades as he kept this to himself. It turned out he saved 669 children from an unspeakable fate.
He risked his life to do what needed to be done. Doing what’s right sounds so easy. But I guess if it was, then there’d be a lot more Nicolas Wintons.
Mr. Winton passed several years back. Before his death he was reunited with those children he saved. This undoubtedly was the only reward he needed for his bravery. That’s a true hero.
