Pictured: Sculptor Moira Purver working on the maquette of Trevor.<br />
<br />
A maquette has been made of an unsung British hero who helped save hundreds of children destined for Nazi concentration camps.<br />
<br />
Trevor Chadwick, nicknamed the 'Purbeck Schindler', assisted Sir Nicholas Winton in rescuing 669 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia before World War Two.<br />
<br />
His brave actions, which saw him hoodwink Nazi officers in Prague, were only revealed over 50 years after the war.<br />
<br />
Sculptor Moira Purver has made a poignant 18.5ins clay model of Trevor holding one child's hand and cradling a younger child in his arms.<br />
<br />
The maquette will be scaled up into a life-size bronze statue which will go on display in his home town of Swanage, Dorset.
