Anthony Hopkins will be playing the role of Sir Nicholas Winton in the upcoming film, ‘One Life’. In 1939, a young British stockbroker named Nicholas Winton saved 669 Jewish kids from Czechoslovakia during the Holocaust. He never spoke of what he did and it remained a secret for 50 years until his wife discovered a scrapbook in the attic with the names, photos, and documentations of the children he had saved. In 1988, Winton appeared on a BBC tv show called “That’s Life” and was completely unaware that the people in the audience were alive because of him. Sir Nicholas Winton passed away in 2015 at the age of 106.
