A statue honoring the “British Schindler” was unveiled at a train station in Britain.

Sir Nicholas Winton, 101, attended the dedication ceremony Saturday at the Maidenhead railway station.

He smuggled 669 mostly Jewish boys and girls out of Czechoslovakia in 1939.

The bronze statue shows Winton sitting on a park bench reading a book containing pictures of the children he saved.
