Sir Nicholas Winton Saved the Lies of 669 Children
« on: July 07, 2014, 11:24:36 PM »
As I share this video to you, my tears are rolling down for this great inspiring man, Sir Nicholas Winton who saved the life of 669 children from Nazi death camps.

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. This is a clip of a video where Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

The video of Sir Nicholas Winton is here:

Sir Nicholas Winton - BBC Programme "That's Life" aired in 1988


You can see a few more videos of Sir Nicholas from the above link also. His story is indeed very inspiring. He was doing very well and he heard about the war broke out and decided to take a "break" from his work and go help the kids to flee the war zone. From the 669 people he helped, there are many more thousands of their 2nd generation born. Wow... And the best part, is that he kept it low profile for so many years.

It is also very touching that kids the he helped are showing gratitude towards him, and I pray that the kids will be kind and become a role model of gratitude!

It is always very moving to hear of people acting out of great compassion like Sir Nicholas Winton. He risked his life to save so many children out of Nazi camps. How many people do we know of who would actually do something similar to this?

Thank you for sharing this article. It shows that if we truly practise compassion, it is possible to do great deeds fearlessly when we focus on the benefits of the greater good.

This story is very touching. Sir Nicholas Winton was a brave man to have travelled to the Nazi camps to save those children. It can be seen from the video that they were very grateful to him. Saving lives is a virtue. In Buddhism, when one saves lives, one's own life is prolonged.

The story is about Nicholas Winton, a Jew himself, who helped Jewish children. It is hypocritically timed to cover what Jews are doing right now to no-Jewish children. 50 killed today, while you were taking your coffee and writing your posts, 450 in the recent days.

Why not a story about the desperate Palestinian parents trying to save their children from the massacre perpetrated by Jews, probably the descendants of those ”saved” by Nicholas Winton?

Except for Winton's own statements, there is no evidence that he actually did anything for those children. It is hardly conceivable that not even Winton's own wife would know about it even after more than four decades.

There are other precedents of Jewish people concocting tales, mainly aiming at demonizing Germans and at describing Jews as peaceful and heroic, but which were late prove as fakeries.

Famous are the Jewish couple Herman and Roma Radzicki Rosenblat, whose ”holocaust” story was called ”the single greatest love story”, but eventually unmasked as fake.

Around 1998, ”a Swiss historian debunked Binjamin Wilkomirski’s 1996 memoir, ”Fragments,” which described how he survived as a Latvian Jewish orphan in a Nazi concentration camp. It turns out the book was written by Bruno Doessekker, a Swiss man who spent the war in relative comfort in Switzerland.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/29/books/29hoax.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0

Jacob or Israel is taken by Jews as their foremost role model. It is well known how Jacob lied to his onw father, Isaac, and extorted his own brother, Esau, in order to receive an inheritance.

Bottom line, the story, specially because of its timing, is just a propaganda coup, aimed at covering the real massacre of Palestinian children happening right now, as one can see from the above pictures. For those bereft children there are no ”heroes”.

It is a shame that people who call themselves ”Buddhist” make themselves accomplices of such a criminal war propaganda machine.

Well! Sir Nicholas Winton did saved these Jews directly and indirectly. It may also be part of the 'fake' propaganda designed to glorify the Jews. We won't really know the real truth. What matters is the karma created by the help extended by Sir Nicholas.

@Matibhadra - Buddhists do not condone the acts of war and violence waged against the Palestinian children and mothers by anyone. These Palestinians are innocent until proven guilty. Being slaughtered or butchered this way is not a solution. This is not a Buddhist act and I do not agree with you.

Except for his own self-glorifying, unlikely story, there is nothing to prove it. There are many precedents of similar blatant lies.

Specially as long as one, like you, take for granted unproven and unlikely self-glorifying statements.

Inventing a story for personal and tribal self-promotion is no help at all, unless you mean ”help” to hide the atrocities committed by Jews against Palestinians.

By the way, after having killed 100 yesterday, mostly women and children, this morning Jews are again killing innocents Palestinians with chemical weapons of mass destruction, such as phosporous bombs.

And meanwhile people like you enthralled by ridiculous stories meant at covering such crimes!

Amazing! You say that it is ”impossible” to prove that the Jew Nicholas Winton lied, but that it is possible to prove the guilt even of Palestinian women and children!

This is because you fail to realize that giving credence and propagandizing blatant lies about the Jew Nicholas Winton, as you do, is just a sordid method aiming at covering the genocide perpetrated by Jews against Palestinians.
