The English Schindler

An elderly Englishman has been nominated for a Nobel Peace prize for his work masterminding the safe transport of 700 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia to England just before WWII began.

Sir Nicholas Winton worked tirelessly and fearlessly to save as many children from the spectre of the Nazi camps as he could, and at the age of 98, still prays daily for the 200 children he couldn't save, who were on trains due to go to London on the day the Prague borders were closed, the Nazis took over the train and the children were never to be seen again.

Thank God there were such men who were willing to sacrifice their skills, time and very lives , if need be, to save others from harm.
May God richly bless him.

His name was in one of the notebooks - prayer reminders - I inherited from my mother. May God grant him many years both now and forever.
