A vintage train carrying people who escaped the Holocaust as children is steaming from Prague to London to mark the 70th anniversary of mass evacuations of children from Czechoslovakia.
Sir Nicholas Winton, a Briton, arranged eight trains to carry 669 mostly Jewish children through Germany to Britain at the outbreak of World War II to prevent them from being sent to Nazi concentration camps.
Now 100 years old, Winton will be in London on Friday to greet the train's 170 passengers, including 22 he saved.
One of them was Hana Franklova, 78. She said Tuesday before boarding the train that she expected a highly emotional experience, and called the event "a miracle."
A statue of Winton was unveiled at Prague's central station before the train left.
