He risked his life to successfully save 669 mostly Jewish children from Czechoslovakia during The Holocaust by ensuring their safe passage to Britain. And then, like a true hero, he never spoke of it again until fifty years later when his wife found a scrapbook in the attic of their home that contained the names, pictures and documents of the children that he saved.
