Project

The exhibition presents the facts surrounding and the emotions associated with the outstanding journey of the Winton Train after many years. It is aimed at the general public and will be displayed open air on 28 mobile panels. 

The documentary materials and photographs are accompanied by explanatory texts. 

Maps and documents on the Fascist ideology leading to the persecution of the Jews, pogroms and the tragic impact of Crystal Night will remind young ones of the dramatic moments of recent history coming back to life today through the fanatic ideologies of nationalism. 

The pictures show children’s faces and their travel documents; they capture the life of Nicholas Winton before the train’s first departure in 1938 and they document the concentration camps of Auschwitz – Birkenau, portraying the horrific conditions under which the children there lived. 

The exhibition will also display the testimony of contemporary Winton children living in the Czech Republic. It will offer pictures from visits to their homes, their recent portraits and it will explore the lives of their families. 

It includes remarkable detailed photo documentation of the journey of the Winton Train from Prague to London with all its four stops in Germany and Holland and the powerful confrontation of 1939 in 2009. 

It also shows Sir Nicholas Winton – who for hundreds of children is their only, yet not merely symbolic, father… 

The photographs capture the highly emotive meeting with Sir Nicholas as well provide a glance into his contemporary home in Maidenhead. 

It will also touch upon today‘s ethnic, racial and national conflicts – the most up-to-date themes of abusing and suppressing human rights and freedoms.
