01 September, 2009

一列老式火车驶离布拉格,前往伦敦。这是纪念二战期间犹太儿童从捷克斯洛伐克逃亡到英国70周年的一项活动。

伦敦股票经纪人温顿安排了70年前的火车转移,拯救了669名儿童,其中大部分都是犹太人。

温顿的计划使他们免于被送进纳粹集中营。温顿现年100岁,他将于星期五迎接火车抵达伦敦。车上的一些乘客是温顿在1939年帮助撤离的人。

火车星期二离开之前,参加纪念活动的人在布拉格市中心火车站举行了温顿雕像的揭幕仪式。

A vintage train has left Prague for London, as part of commemorations marking the 70th anniversary of the evacuation of Jewish children from Czechoslovakia to Britain during World War Two.

London stockbroker Nicolas Winton arranged the train transfers that saved 669 mostly Jewish children from being sent to Nazi concentration camps.

Winton, who is now 100 years old, is expected to meet the train when it arrives in Britain Friday. Some of the passengers are people he helped evacuate in 1939.

Before the train's departure Tuesday, participants unveiled a statue of Winton at Prague's central train station.
