Not surprised, the real quality of people like this is not to run around bragging about it.



An interview with Sir Winton, done for the Slovak version of CNN.

The first blurb is in Slovak, but the interview is done in English.

There are a lot of heroes in this world. The quit heroes of this sort remind us all of the good qualities of human nature and serve as an example for the rest of us. One man or woman can make an enormous difference and we need to.

An amazing story. I only have one question - if his wife discovered this in 1988, why did it take until 2014 to honour this man? He was 105!! Most would never have lived long enough to receive the much deserved honours. I'm very glad he did though.
