Valley Chabad Hosts Screening of ‘Nicky’s Family’

On August 12, over 300 people attended the screening of the powerful documentary “Nicky’s Family.” The film chronicles the life of Sir Nicholas Winton and his heroic efforts to save over 600 Jewish children from the Nazis in Prague during World War II. Winton has been described as the “British Schindler” and demonstrates how an ordinary man went to extraordinary lengths to save these children. Winton never mentioned his courageous efforts until decades later when his wife found documents hidden in their attic detailing his rescue efforts and placement of the Prague children who were transported to England. Winton passed away on June 1 at the age of 106.

At the conclusion of the film, a 90-year-old woman, who was one of the children rescued by Winton, told a captivated audience about her memorable experiences.

This event was proudly sponsored by the Valley Chabad, the Bergen County YJCC, and the George and Martha Rich Foundation.
