May we never forget!

Well done and quite poignant. Sir Nicholas Winton was a hero indeed. I lived in Czechoslovakia and it became Czech Republic while I was there. We visited Lidice and Terizen Stadt on a number of occasions. May we never forget.

Excellent and eye opening

Excellent and eye opening. Heart breaking to think that parents made the ultimate sacrifice! May we all be aware and NEVER let this happen again!!

"I found out I'm not a very good person.

I showed this to a classful of high school students. Total silence until about halfway through when from the middle of the class I hear, "you said it was a documentary. It's giving us the 'feels'." End of the film, I ask for feedback: "I found out I'm not a very good person...I should be doing things for other people." "We got so many 'feels' from this movie. " "I had no idea."I felt good sharing Sir Winton with my class and hearing the student discuss how the video affected them.
