Nickys Family screening at Norden Farm

On Saturday evening Norden Farm screened Nicky's Family, a film based on the life of Maidenhead's Sir Nicholas Winton. The screening, attended by Sir Nicholas himself, was introduced by the Home Secretary Theresa May MP and Rabbi Jonathan Romain led a discussion at the end of the film.

Nicky's Family

Discover the inspirational true story of "Britain's Schindler" Sir Nicholas Winton in the award-winning film "Nicky's Family". An ordinary British stockbroker, Nicholas Winton organised the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. Winton, now 103 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His heroism would have probably been forgotten if his wife, fifty years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans. Today the story of this rescue is known around the world, and thousands of descendants of 'Nicky's Family' continue to follow in his footsteps to do good. "Nicky's Family" has earned rave reviews from audiences and critics around the world, winning over 29 awards - including 13 audience awards from U.S. film festivals!
