Meet The Man Who Saved Thousands Of People From The Nazis

He was a British humanitarian worker who organised the rescue of 669 children from the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia.

Sir Nicholas, then a stockbroker, arranged for trains to carry Jewish children out of occupied Prague. In an operation he founded known as Czech Kindertransport, he diverted trains which were destined for the Nazi death camps before World War II.

Sir Nicholas organised a total of eight trains from Prague, with some other forms of transport also set up from Vienna.

But the world only found out about his work more than 40 years later.
