Tulsa Jewish Film Series: Nicky’s Family

Nicky's Family

 

Wed., Aug. 7 • 7 p.m. at Circle Cinema (12 South Lewis Ave) • Join us for Nicky’s Family, the inaugural film in this partnership between Circle Cinema, Jewish Federation of Tulsa and The Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art. Sir Nicholas Winton personally and by his own initiative saved the lives of 669 children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia and brought them across Hitler’s Germany to Britain. For nearly 50 years, he kept secret how he rescued these children, not even his wife knew anything about it. The story only emerged in 1988 when the BBC broadcast a thrilling show about the first meeting of approximately one hundred of the rescued children with their secret rescuer about whom they had known nothing for 50 years. Today he is often called Britain’s Schindler. Alive and well at over 100, Sir Nicholas is still diffident about why he kept his secret for so long. He also is an immensely compelling symbol of how the caring of one man can truly make a difference.

Cost: $9/Adults, $7/Seniors, Military, Students, $6/Circle Cinema Members
