I want to save these kids. I want to save them all
You're crazy! Your never going to be able to do that.
Well, I can at least try.
Yes Hello. I am bringing a ton of kids in, I need your help to find them homes.
The man with the glasses is Nicholas Winton. He was on his way to save a bunch of Jewish children, he just didn't know it yet. He was on the shorter side and wore glasses. His friend called him to come visit him in Czechoslovakia at death camps. He had to skip a planned Swiss ski vacation for this. He is on the train to meet his friend when he arives.
When Nicholas's friend showed him the concentration camp, he was so sad and angry at what he saw. He wanted to get the kids out as soon as possible. He wanted to save as many as he could. His friend thought he was out of his mind.
You can't pass, Hitler has closed the borders!
Later that night, he spent a lot of time talking on the phone to organize foster parents for the kids he was saving the next day. He would use the money he go from them to pay for the transportation cost for the kids.
The next day, he loaded trains and trains of kids and sent them to London to have them meet their new home and family. He got many trains with lots of children on them. The kids were in bad condition and very hungry.
He got lots of carts full of children out. He was planning to get another 250 out but then Hitler attacked Poland and after the victory, he closed all borders. It stopped the last full cart from getting out.
Nicholas Winton was sad and at the same time mad that he wasn't able to save the last train, but he looked at the bright side and realized that he had saved 669 kids from death at a camp. Even though he was so happy, he could not tell anyone about this until after the war ended.
I just saved 669 kids from a death camp. I am so good. Mission complete
