Albert and Ethel Herzstein Theater
Bank of Texas Film and Lecture Series: “Nicky’s Family”
Archival footage is blended with vivid reenactments to tell the remarkable story of heroic Englishman Sir Nicholas Winton, who coordinated the rescue of more than 650 Jewish Czech and Slovak children in the turbulent days before World War II. His efforts may have gone unnoticed had it not been for a curious discovery made by his wife in their attic 50 years later. Today, the story of this rescue is known all over the world. Winton's story is a very emotional one, and thousands of children in many countries have decided to follow in his footsteps and do something important. They wanted to show the unique phenomenon that has emerged from Winton's story, how his courageous acts many years ago continue to influence people from all over the world and motivate them to do good. This event is presented as part of the Bank of Texas Film and Lecture Series. Tickets are $5 for HMH members and $8 for nonmembers. Seniors and students may pay $4 at the door.
