Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.
After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

Do NOT shame people for choosing not to go to school.
Do NOT insult people for dropping out.
Do NOT teach your children that dropping out means you are a failure.
You never know what’s going on in that person’s life.
Just DON’T DO IT.
