- The children need to be transported on trains - They need good homes to live in when they arrive - Each kid needs 50 pounds to get transported
Nicholas Winton was remembering how he was about to get on the plane when his friend, Martin Blake called. He answered the phone and Martin begged Nick to cancel his trip to go help him with refugees. Nicholas wanted to go on his trip, but Martin convinced him to cancel it. That was the beginning of he journey.
This way to your new homes.
When Nicholas worked with Martin, he grew an interest in helping refugees. This is when he realized that Poland would not be safe. Adolf Hitler would soon take over. Since he loved helping refugees, he decided to transport kids into Britain to keep them safe.
Nicholas Winton had to decide whether or not he would help kids get to safety from Poland. He decided to and did lots of planning to get them to safety. He arranged trains, families, money and more so that they might have a chance of surviving. Nick was a hard worker and did a lot to get 669 kids to safety.
Nicholas Winton organized for 8 trains to transport kids. Unfortunately the last train couldn't leave because Hitler closed the borders. The kids were very nervous getting off the train, but they were going to have better lives in Britain rather than Poland. Nick was able to document every kid he saved and would remember them for the rest of his life.
Nicholas helped get many kids good homes to live in. These homes gave them protection and better lives. The children were happy and safe from Hitler's grasp. All 669 children owe their lives to Nicholas Winton for saving them.
The theme is to help people in need when you can. Nicholas didn't have to help the children, but he did because he loved them. He put so much time and effort into getting the kids to safety. So when someone needs help with something that you can help them with, help them.
