Former London Stock Exchange clerk Sir Nicholas Winton, 93, was instrumental in rescuing more than 650 children in Kindertransports via eight trains between March and August 1939.
In the article, Sir Nicholas remembers a ninth train.
A ninth train, the biggest, was to leave Prague on September 3, 1939, the day Britain entered the war — but it never left the station. "Within hours of the announcement, it disappeared,” he recalled. "We had 250 families waiting at Liverpool Street that day in vain. If the train had been a day earlier, it would have come through.Known as the "British Schindler," Sir Nicholas has been honored internationally for his good deeds.
"Not a single one of those children was heard of again."
