Storyboard Text

  • It’s now December, 1938, just before Christmas. I come from the United Kingdom, also known as England. I was just a simple stockbroker.
  •  I used to work in many banks throughout my life, but I think my life is about to change. I am about to leave my skiing holiday in Switzerland to go to Prague which is apparently the capital of Czechoslovakia.
  • One of my friends, Martin Blake, asked me to cancel my holiday in Switzerland because he needed help with getting refugees out of Czechoslovakia.
  • I was part of a committee made back in October to assist the German annexation refugees of the regions under the Munich Pact. Germany, or Nazi Germany it was called at the time, is capturing Jewish people!
  • So today in December of 1938, I shall travel to Prague, to see my friend Martin. Once I meet him in Prague, we make our way down to the next couple cities over in Czechoslovakia. I want to make sure all the refugees make it back to England.
