One Life: The True Story of Sir Nicholas Winton

Overview

The book that inspired major motion picture ONE LIFE, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins and Helena Bonham Carter. 'Remarkable' - Guardian Sir Nicholas Winton rescued 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia at the brink of World War II. Most never saw their parents again; nearly all left behind were murdered. This is his story. In 1938, 29-year-old 'Nicky' cancelled a ski holiday and instead spent nine months masterminding a seemingly impossible plan to rescue hundreds of Jewish children and find them homes in the UK. Over 6,000 people are alive today because of his efforts. What motivated an ordinary man to do something so extraordinary? This book, written by his daughter, Barbara, explores the 106-year life of an incredible humanitarian, a man whose legacy only came to public light decades later. His life story is a clarion call to choose action over apathy in the face of injustice, and a reminder that every one of us can change the world. 'If something is not impossible, then there must be a way to do it.' 'Those of us who came on a Kindertransport from Prague and owe our lives to Nicky will be so grateful to Barbara for writing something so special' - Lord Alf Dubs, ex-Labour minister and 'rescued child' [This book was first published in 2014 as If It's Not Impossible... The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton]
