On 27 June 2013 the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation honored Sir Nicholas Winton, English Holocaust savior that turned 104 last May. During Second World War Winton rescued and saved from certain death more than six hundred Jewish children from Czechoslovakia condemned by the Nazis to perish at death camps.
Winton received the Raoul Wallenberg Centennial Medal in a special ceremony held at the Embassy of Sweden in London with the presence of former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown. Eduardo Eurnekian and Baruch Tenenbaum, Chairman and Founder respectively of the educational NGO, presented the award.
In his speech, Eurnekian said: “Sir Nicholas Winton risked his comfortable position as a stockbroker and began an operation that any sensible person would have qualified as impossible. Few people deserve the Nobel Peace Prize more than Sir Nicholas Winton”.
