Nicholas Winton, who saved hundreds of children from Holocaust, dies at 106

London (CNN)For decades, Sir Nicholas Winton hardly spoke of what he’d done.

But when Winton died at the age of 106, Britain’s prime minister said that his actions were something the world should always remember.

“The world has lost a great man,” Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted Wednesday. “We must never forget Sir Nicholas Winton’s humanity in saving so many children from the Holocaust.”

    Too bad that other countries did not help in this effort. a lot more could have been saved. He was a wonderfully courageous man, who acted on a need that was vital to the future of so many. Unfortunately, there aren’t many like him these days. He was still going strong for so many years and still making a difference.
