    I agree. If this doesn't make you spontaneously cry I don't know what will.

    From what I've read about him, he was trying to get people to sponsor many more than the 669 that were eventually removed from Germany.

    I would be willing to bet you that, despite all the good he did, he was more than a little haunted by the thought that he could have done more.

    It is a bitter double-edged sword.

    Bless you, Sir Nicholas Winton.

    It matters because there are a lot of people who actually believe the Holocaust never happened. So it's important to remember things like this so we don't repeat them.

    Awesome, what a guy, total respect for someone so selfless, wouldn't you rather be remembered like that, I know I would.
    We all have the power to do kind deeds, even down to helping a homeless person on the street, buy some food for them or a hot drink or a new pair of shoes or a coat to keep them warm, everything you do is important, you don't need the recognition, just do it anyway.

    I am so utterly jaded I cannot feel emotion from this. I'm indifferent.

    Infact, I almost was bored.

    War brings out the worst...and best in humanity.
