60 Minutes producer Harry Radliffe was in a cinema with a friend, waiting to for a movie to start, when his friend asked if he had heard the story of Nicholas Winton. Winton, a 29-year-old stockbroker, used his vacation time to save hundreds of children from the Nazis by organizing a rescue mission from Czechoslovakia to London on the eve of World War II.
“My friend told me what the story was about, and then she said, ‘The man who’s now Sir Nicholas Winton is still alive.’ And I said, ‘You’re kidding me.'” Other heroes of the Holocaust, like Oskar Schindler and Raoul Wallenberg, have been dead for decades. Winton is 104 years old.
That evening, Radliffe called up 60 Minutes correspondent Bob Simon and said “If you had an opportunity to speak with Raoul Wallenberg or Oskar Schindler, you would, wouldn’t you?” Simon said yes, and Radliffe said, “Well, we oughta do this story.”
“I think stories that show that one person can make a difference are worth telling,” says Radliffe. “Look at the difference that this one person made. Here’s a guy who didn’t have to get involved, who got involved, and look at what happened. The number of people who are alive today who would not be alive if a guy named Nick Winton hadn’t decided to use his vacation to go to Prague and get involved, is extraordinary.”
