Now this is a true hero.

In 1939, British stockbroker Nicholas Winton risked his life to save 669 mostly Jewish children by helping them gain safe passage to Britain. He was honored by Queen Elizabeth II in 2003 and many called him the “British Schindler.”

While Winton passed away in 2015, this video of him on the British TV show, That’s Life, has gotten over 31 million views on YouTube. On the show, Winton is surprised to find himself sitting in a room with all the children he saved back in 1939. Watch the emotional video above.
