Sir Winton

I don’t visit the Google search home page, so I’m usually unaware of their doodles, but today’s filtered up through another page I visit and it definitely seemed worth sharing.

Illustration for article titled Sir Winton

This is an incredible story, of a man who faced not-inconsiderable peril and financial stress to rescue hundreds of Jewish children from Hitler. I find it astonishing that his story was untold for 50 years because he didn’t feel it worth talking about, even to his wife.


I haven’t had the courage to watch this video. I cry too easily.
