What a great humanitarian!
More than 33,000 Czech schoolchildren have persuaded their government to nominate for the Nobel Peace Prize a British man who rescued hundreds of youngsters from the Nazis.
News came after both houses of the US Congress had honoured him for his humanitarian endeavours. A spokesman for the Czech Embassy in London said that Sir Nicholas, 98, had been invited to Prague next month to meet the country’s leaders.
He set up a Kindertransport that rescued 669 Jewish children between March and August 1939, earning himself the accolade the “British Schindler”.
