Nicky’s Family is a feature-length English-language documentary revealing the secret rescue operation of Sir Nicholas Winton of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II.
The film will be shown on Wednesday, June 5, 7:30 p.m. at Temple Israel of Lawrence, 140 Central Avenue, downstairs (parking and entrance behind the building). $5 admission.
Winton, now 103 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits, which have no parallel in modern history, would have probably been forgotten if his wife, 50 years later, hadn’t found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans.
