Review - Labour of love

BARBARA Winton told the crowd assembled in Henley Town Hall that her father’s motto is “if something’s not impossible there must be a way to do it”.

There are about 6,000 people in the world today who owe their existence to Sir Nicholas Winton.

As a young banking clerk in 1939, he rescued 669 Czech children from the Nazi threat so for his extraordinary story this phrase seems fairly apt.

He is now 105 and living in Maidenhead and his daughter has painstakingly sifted through his papers for her book If It’s Not Impossible…. named after his motto.

Mrs Winton began by speaking about the period of her father’s life that has gained him recognition as a humanitarian icon.
