A documentary about a young British banker who helped rescue hundreds of Czech Jewish children from the Nazis was screened at the Florida Jewish Film Festival. “The Power of Humanity” tells the story of Nicholas Winton, now 92, who saved 669 Czech children, most of them Jews, by arranging for them to be transported to Britain just before the Nazis invaded Czechoslovakia.
