for Outstanding Documentary was nominated for the 2006 News and Documentary EMMY AWARD

In 1939, Sir Nicholas Winton, a young stock exchange clerk, personally and by his own initiative without any official support, saved the lives of 669 children most of them Jewish, from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and brought them across Hitler’s Germany to Britain.  For nearly 50 years, he kept secret how he rescued these children, but now thanks to the documentary film Power of Good, his story got known to many countries and he is often called “Britain’s Schindler.”  Unlike Schindler and Wallenberg, Winton is today still alive and well at 98 and his story is positively “changing the world”. Thousands of students, influenced by Nicky´s selfless act of kindness and compassion, would like to in their own way to make this world a better place. 

We believe that “The Power of Good” has a strong message for our turbulent times and may be the ultimate expression of confronting “evil” on a personal level . Sir Winton said it best in a letter he wrote in 1939,
 “…There is a difference between passive goodness and active goodness.  The latter is, in my opinion, the giving of one’s time and energy in the alleviation of pain and suffering.
It entails going out, finding and helping those  who are suffering and in danger and not merely in leading an exemplary life, in a purely passive way of doing no wrong.”


On March 11t ,2003 Sir Nicholas Winton  Was  knighted by Queen Elisabeth II for saving hundreds of mostly Jewish children from Nazi brutality
