Sir Nicholas Winton was going on a skiing holiday to Switzerland when he heard about world war 2 . He then decided not to go on holiday but go to Prague to see what help he could give. He helped and escorted 669 children away from the trouble and into friendly countries where they were put in foster homes. He then came back to Britain and argued against the war but as the war kept going on he joined the RAF.
