Nobel for Winton?


Sir Nicholas Winton, the man behind the Czech Kindertransport, should
be nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, according to the International
Raoul Wallenberg Foundation. Founder Baruch Tenembaum says that Sir
Nicholas, now 100, performed ”remarkable feats” when he organised the
evacuation of 669 Czechoslovakian Jewish children on the eve of the war.
