Choose a morning or afternoon tour and meet your guide and the rest of your small group in central Prague for your 2.5-hour tour. Then, explore the elegant streets, setting the scene by hearing about the fears of Prague’s Jewish community as the Nazis annexed part of Czechoslovakia on the eve of WWII.
Delve into the historical Jewish Quarter as your guide’s story unfolds, hearing how British stockbroker Nicholas Winton came to the city in 1938 to help secure safe passage for Jewish children to Great Britain.
Learn about the courageous and complex dealings of Winton and his team, and follow in the footsteps of the evacuees in 1939 as they parted from their parents.
Branch into Prague Old Town and New Town, and view the Petschek Palace, the former German Gestapo headquarters, and the embarkation point of the 669 children Winton managed to evacuate, thus saving them from certain death.
Learn the poignant stories of some of those rescued, and hear how Winton was knighted in Britain in 2002 for his bravery.
Finish at one of Prague’s most beautiful Art Nouveau cafés. Here, reflect on the strength of the human spirit over a drink with your guide and group, bringing your tour to an end.
