    A Special Viewing of the movie Nicky’s Family

    Fri. June 2 1-3:30 pm

    Director: Matej Minac, 2013; 96 minutes, UK, Czech Republic, English

    The heartwarming, true story of “Britain’s Schindler”, Nicholas Winton, who organized the rescue of 669 Czech children, most of them Jewish, with his own personal “kinder transports”, just before the outbreak of World War II. Winton never spoke of these events with anyone for 50 years. It was not until his wife Greta unearthed an old briefcase full of documents that the story was revealed. Since then, hundreds of Winton’s “children”, now in their 70s and 80s, have been found and to this day his “family” has grown to number almost 6000. Following the film, special guest Eva (Fleischmann) Paddock, a “Winton Child” will speak. This program is co-sponsored by the Worcester Senior Center and Worcester JCC.
