"Nicky's Family" - Optimisim in it's highest degree - CinemaDave

Jan. 9th, 2013 04:39 pm "Nicky's Family" - Optimisim in it's highest degree

To help launch the U.S theatrical release of **Nicky's Family** tomorrow, the Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education (CHHRE) at Florida Atlantic University (FAU) and Menemsha Films are bringing Nick Winton, the son of Sir Nicholas Winton from London to speak with students at area schools and movie-goers. Nick will be joined by a survivor from The Florida Chapter of Kindertransport Association.

A lighter version of **Schindler's List,** **Nicky's Family** presents Sir Nick's one man crusade to rescue Jewish children from Nazis in Czechoslovakia. Now in their seventies and eighties, many of the 600+ survivors speak fondly of their mysterious benefactor. As Sir Nick celebrates his 100th birthday, he is greeted by thousands of the Czechoslovakia offspring that he helped create. Given the dark history of the Nazi Holocaust, the optimism of Sir Nick reigns supreme in the modern day.
