If It's Not Impossible The Life of Sir Nicholas Winton (Barbara Winton) Four years of research and writing went into Barbara Winton's biography of her father Sir Nicholas Winton. Sir Nicholas Winton saved hundreds of children from the Nazis. The book launched May 2014 to coincide with Sir Nicholas's 105th birthday. Barbara Wilton had access to all Nicky's papers and photos, as well as his own recollections and those of his friends, family and colleagues. This will be a fascinating read.
