Ruth Humpreyes, a Jewish survivor of the Holocaust, looks out from a window of the historical train named ''Winton train'' at Prague's Main Railway Station on September 1, 2009, on the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II. The Winton train is named after Sir Nicholas Winton who rescued Humpreyes and 668 mostly Jewish-Czech children from their doomed fate in the Nazi death camps, prior to the outbreak of World War II in an operation known as the Czech Kindertransport.
