Prior to World War II, Sir Nicholas Winton (who is still alive at the age of 103) single-handedly started an organization that was responsible for the rescue of 669 Jewish children from German-occupied Czechoslovakia. The operation, which would be later known as Czech Kindertransport, gave the children safe passage into Britain and found homes for them, earning him the moniker “The British Schindler.”

In this clip from the 1988 BBC program “That’s Life,” Winton was reunited with a group of those he saved in one of the more touching videos I’ve seen this week.

Don’t worry, we all know you just have something in your eyes.
