The things she carried

The final gifts that a mother and father gave their 14-year-old Jewish daughter as she boarded a train to escape the Nazis

60 Minutes producer Harry Radliffe was in a cinema with a friend, waiting to for a movie to start, when his friend asked if he had heard the story of Nicholas Winton. Winton, a 29-year-old stockbroker, used his vacation time to save hundreds of children from the Nazis by organizing a rescue mission from Czechoslovakia to London on the eve of World War II.

"My friend told me what the story was about, and then she said,'The man who's now Sir Nicholas Winton is still alive.' And I said,'You're kidding me.'" Other heroes of the Holocaust, like Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg, have been dead for decades. Winton is 104 years old.

WWII was not about the jews who wound up in concentration camps. The jewish problem was incidental to WWII. Jewish leaders delivered a lot of grief on their own people. Stop with the endless stupid stories. Nobody cares anymore, and it's getting annoying.
If you want to tell a riveting story, tell about how the jews (bolsheveks) were severing german soldier's heads and lining them up in a row on the side of a road on the Russian front.
