Sir Nicholas Winton, who is 105, may travel from the UK to Prague to receive in person a Czech state honour. Sir Nicholas saved the lives of nearly 700 Prague Jewish children during World War II and is set to be presented with the Order of the White Lion, the Czech Republic’s highest state honour. Prague Castle protocol chief Jindřich Forejt told Czech Television he had spoken to the former diplomat in London on Saturday and that the latter had said he would come to the Czech capital for the award ceremony on October 28, which is Czechoslovak Independence Day, if he could.
