Please join the Jewish Community Relations Council of Minnesota and the Dakotas for an evening at the American Swedish Institute (ASI). Enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages in the courtyard of ASI (weather permitting) and view the exhibition, Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War. We will also have the opportunity to hear Nick Winton share the remarkable story of his father, Sir Nicholas Winton MBE, who saved 669 children via Kindertransport.

About the Speaker:

Nick Winton will present the story of his father, Sir Nicholas Winton, who organized the rescue of 669 children from Czechoslovakia on Kindertransports in the nine months leading up to the outbreak of World War II. Nick will share his experience growing up with this remarkable man, learning about ethics, values and the importance of making a contribution to the community in which you live.
