icholas Winton's late wife,
Greta, was looking through
the attic when she found a
scrapbook containing chil-
dren's names, photos and letters writ-
ten by their parents.
She soon learned her 1988 discov-
ery reached back to 1939, the year
her husband saved the lives of some
700 Jewish children in Nazi-occupied
Czechoslovakia.
He had never, spoken to her about
his heroic acts.
But there was a lot to tell, and 10
years later, filmmaker Matej Minac,
who had read about Winton's acts of
courage in a book by Vera Gissing, a
youngster from Prague rescued by
Winton's efforts, conveyed the infor-
mation through cinema.
His documentary The Power of
Good: Nicholas Winton will be shown
7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, at
the West Bloomfield Jewish
Community Center.
The presentation is one of the pre-
view events for the JCC's fifth annu-
al Lenore Marwil Jewish Film
Festival, which will be held April 27-
May 6 in Commerce Township,
Birmingham and Windsor, and May
4-8 in Ann Arbor.
"This is an art movie in itself even
though it's a documentary," says
David Magidson, festival director,
who was instrumental in showing the
film last spring as part of the Ann
Arbor segment of the festival.

"Seeing this movie would be like
seeing a documentary about Oscar
Schindler, and it's getting awards all
_over the country."
Minac, who lost family during the
Holocaust, also directed All My
Loved Ones, a film about a Czech
Jewish family with a Winton child,
the family's only Holocaust survivor.
"I think it's very important for the
public to realize that Nicholas
Winton is still among us and to learn
things from him," Minac recently
told Prague Radio. "His account is
incredibly interesting."
Winton, a 29-year-old London
stockbroker in 1939, was called to
Prague by a friend who was con-
vinced that war was imminent. With
the help of a few volunteers and in
the brief time available before the
war, Winton arranged to send Jewish
children from Czechoslovakia to fam-
ilies in Britain.
It was a project reminiscent of the
Kindertransport, which rescued
10,000 Jewish children from prewar
Germany, Austria, Poland and
Czechoslovakia, and inspired the
Academy Award-winning documen-
tary Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories

of the Kindertransport.
"I did it merely because it had to
be done and nobody else [I knew]
was doing it," said Winton, who has
volunteered with the elderly and
mentally disabled since his retire-
ment more than 30 years ago.
Winton's parents were born Jewish,
according to an article in The New
York Times, but he was baptized in
