Nicholas Winton talked about his father who lived in Maidenhead, not just about his work saving 669 children from the Nazis but about other aspects of his live. Many thanks to our local Rotary Club for arranging this. "One LIfe" sold out faster than any other film we have screened and was the first to be greeted with a round of applause at the end.
