A statue of an unsung British hero who saved hundreds of Jewish children destined to die in Nazi concentration camps is due to be unveiled later today (Mon 29/08/22).<br />
<br />
Trevor Chadwick, nicknamed the 'Purbeck Schindler', helped Sir Nicholas Winton rescue 669 Jewish children from Czechoslovakia before the Second World War.<br />
<br />
At great personal risk, the Dorset schoolteacher helped forged exit passed to fool the Nazis to help get children to the safety of Britain. <br />
<br />
Trevor died in 1979 and his brave actions were not revealed until the 1990s.
