Roeper’s Diversity Film Series Features Nicky’s Family in Birmingham

Roeper’s Diversity Film Series presents Nicky’s Family, a nearly forgotten story of Nicholas Winton. Winton was an English stockbroker who masterminded a series of rail-sea transports to save 669 Czech and Slovak refugees, most of them Jewish and in imminent danger of deportation. Not even Winton’s wife knew of his noble acts until a scrapbook detailing the mission was uncovered in 1988. Nicky’s Family combines newsreels and archival photos with dramatic reenactments narrated by rescued children and Sir Winton himself. The film gains added immediacy as grandchildren of the rescues and others describe the resulting humanitarian feats Winton inspired.
