Nicky's Family, coming to New York theaters

Ordinary stockbroker Nicholas Winton organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. As a result of his heroic efforts, today there are over 6,000 descendants of 'Winton's Children" all over the world. Winton, now 104 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits would have probably been forgotten if his wife, fifty years later, hadn't found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents and transport plans.The children that he saved, their descendants and countless others around the world continue to follow his example to do good, as chronicled in the award-winning film Nicky's Family.

"A miracle. Called "Britain's Schindler", Nicholas Winton easily could be the subject of a big-screen Spielberg epic. "Nicky's Family" shows his incredible journey, and best of all, the very happy ending. Like those scrapbooks, it's just waiting to be discovered." - Sioux City Journal

"Go see this one...True heroes do exist." - Movie Night Traffic Light

"A story of triumph. No matter how far you must drive to see this movie it will be decidedly worth every mile." - Mackinac Center for Public Policy

"So inspiring and deeply moving, you'll want to be part of this "Family." - James Verniere, The Boston Herald
