Get ready to use some tissues...
...and have your faith in humanity restored.

I don't know if this is the right section but if so feel free to move it.

This is about a man, Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 Jewish czechoslovakian children from the Holocaust, sending them to England. In 1988, his wife found the notebook where he had annotated their names and so this happened:




孤独 - The Out Crowd
Life is a flash of light between two eternities of darkness.

RE: Get ready to use some tissues...
That is so incredibly moving. I hadn't heard of Sir Nicholas Winton, so I googled him and found a great article from this last May.

You're right, TPA - learning about true heroes like Mr. Winton gives me so much hope for the future of humanity.

RE: Get ready to use some tissues...
I saw the thing they had on Netflix about him.
Yeah, I cried.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I think they did a piece on 60 Minutes about him last year.
It was cool to see him surrounded by all his "kids".

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

The Netflix thing was called Nicky's Family.

It's still streaming on it.

That clip was shown when they spoke about him on 60 Minutes a while back. According to wikipedia, nearly 10,000 children were brought to the United Kingdom. Amazing.
