Nicky’s Family

This award-winning and uplifting documentary recounts the remarkable story of a man who took heroic risks to save the lives of others, and the lasting impact of his actions on the world today. Spurred into action when he learned of the plight of the Jews in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, 29 year old Nicholas Winton, an Englishman, single-handedly organized transports that spirited 669 imperilled children to safety in Great Britain, where he had arranged for them to be taken in by British families. Today, the unassuming Nicholas Winton is 102 years old, and his “family” now numbers close to 6,000 people. The gripping story of the rescue operation is vividly brought to life through dramatic re-enactments and never-before-seen archival footage, and with its focus on present-day Nicholas and his “descendents”, the film movingly and powerfully conveys how the courageous act of one man, even after 70 years, still continues to inspire and motivate people, especially the younger generation, to try and make the world a better place. http://www.bethtzedec.ca/filmfest/filmfest-film-nickys-family.php
