Yad Vashem mourns the passing of Nicholas Winton

02 July 2015

Chairman of the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial in Jerusalem, Avner Shalev, said Winton "acted relentlessly, courageously and with integrity to save children and for that is worthy of our admiration."

"I met with Winton a few years ago in an emotional gathering we held for him with the Israeli children he rescued. Winton knew how to correctly assess the harsh reality and chose to leave his comfortable life and follow the voice of his conscience."
