The Association of Jewish Refugees (AJR) was deeply saddened to learn of Sir Nicholas Winton’s passing.

Sir Nicholas will be rightly venerated as a true hero whose bravery, altruism and determination saved the lives of some of the youngest victims of Nazi oppression.

He was notably modest about his remarkable achievements, which will hopefully inspire future generations to intervene when others are in need of help. Our sympathies, thoughts and prayers are with his family, who can reflect with great pride on his human kindness and a full life of compassion.
