40th Annual Jewish Book and Arts Fair: “Nicky’s Family”
October 28, 2012 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM
Location Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston, 5601 S. Braeswood Blvd., Houston, TX 77096
This documentary is the story of Nicholas Winton, an Englishman who organized the rescue of 669 Czech and Slovak children just before the outbreak of World War II. Winton, now 102 years old, did not speak about these events with anyone for more than half a century. His exploits would have been forgotten if his wife hadn’t found a suitcase in the attic, full of documents. Some 120,000 children in the Czech Republic signed a petition to award Nicholas Winton the Nobel Prize for Peace. Dozens of Winton's “children” have been found and, to this day, his family has grown to almost 6,000 people, many of whom have gone on to achieve great things themselves. The filmmakers also wanted to show the unique phenomenon that has emerged from Winton's story, how his courageous acts many years ago continue to influence people from all over the world and motivate them to do good deeds. This film is presented as part of the 40th Annual Jewish Book and Arts Fair. Tickets are $8 for ERJCC members and $10 for the general public. Visit http://www.erjcchouston.org to register online. For more information, call 713-729-3200.
