EXPLANATION OF PHOTO: I took this picture in Bethlehem, Israel. I was so excited to see a thirty year-old Kansas license plate in the window. It is from Reno County and the “J” is the first letter of the last name of the owner. I never found out whose car this was.
Let’s talk about trains and how a train ride made all the difference.
Willie saw the impressive turnout for the memorial service.
An older gentleman turned to him and asked, “You had family on the train?”
“Yes, my grandfather. You?”
“Yes, I actually was on the train. Lived here in London since.” He glanced through his program. “I was all of seven when I met Nicky. It feels quite odd to call him Sir Nicholas.” He paused, then laughed. “Can you imagine? A man goes on two-week holiday and ends up years later with hundreds of children?”
A woman approached the dais. “I’m Barbara Winton, and on behalf of the Winton family …”
Sir Nicholas Winton, organizer of the Kinder Transport that saved the lives of many Jewish children during World War II.
