Event Description
Nicky's Family

Nicky's Family
Director: Matej Minac
Country: Czech Republic
Nicholas Winton is an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. Now 102 years old, he did not speak about these events for more than half a century. His exploits would've been forgotten if his wife, 50 years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans. Dozens of Winton's “children” have been found and many have gone on to achieve great things themselves. The filmmaker set out to ensure this little-known story was not lost to time, as well as bringing to light the phenomenon that has emerged since. Winton's courageous acts continue to influence people and motivate them to do good. Presented in collaboration with JFilm: the Pittsburgh Jewish Film Forum. (2012; 96 min)
