2At the time, unaccompanied children were not permitted entry to Britain, so he had to convince the British government to change the regulation. He succeeded, one of the conditions being the posting of a bond to ensure that the children would not become a public charge. He found families to take in the children, and raised money to finance their transport.
3On March 14, 1939, the first of his trains left Prague. The next day, the Germans occupied the rest of the country. Fortunately, they allowed the trains (which they called Kindertransports) to keep on rolling.
4When WWII started, he joined the Red Cross as an ambulance driver, and was evacuated from the beaches of Dunkirk during the Allied retreat. He later returned to France as a Royal Air Force pilot. After the war, he worked for various international organizations, among them the International Refugee Organization and the U.S. Marshall Plan.
