In honor of International Holocaust Remembrance Day, 60 Minutes looks back at Bob Simon's 2014 profile of Sir Nicholas Winton, who saved 669 children from the Nazis. The transcript of the story is below. Now, an extraordinary story from the Second World War -- a humanitarian story that didn't come to light for decades. It concerns a young Londoner named Nicholas Winton who went to Prague, and ended up saving the lives of 669 children, mostly Jews, from almost certain death. His story begins at the end of 1938, with Europe on the brink of war. In Germany, violence against Jews was escalating and the infamous Munich Agreement paved the way for Hitler's armies to march unopposed into Czechoslovakia. In London, Nicholas Winton had been following events and knew that refugees fleeing the Nazis were in dire straits. He went to Czechoslovakia to see if there was anything he could do to help. What's strange is that for almost 50 years, he hardly told anyone about what he had accomplished and … [Read more...] about Remembering the man who saved 669 children from the Holocaust
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) tweeted at Representative-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that she should visit the U.S. Holocaust Museum to educate herself about the differences between Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany and the migrant caravan trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. On Sunday, Ocasio-Cortez had tweeted that the migrants — whom she prefers to call “asylum-seekers,” though few would qualify — should receive the same consideration that Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany received during the Holocaust.Ocasio-Cortez appeared not to understand that the U.S., under Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, infamously turned Jewish refugees away. As the Washington Examiner‘s Tim Worstall noted (original emphasis): What did actually happen to Jewish refugees from Germany and Austria? The U.S. maintained its strict controls on the number of migrants it would accept in those years up to entry into the war in 1941. There was also no … [Read more...] about Lindsey Graham Blasts Alexandria-Ocasio-Cortez: Visit the Holocaust Museum

The following is a transcript of the interview with Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif that aired Sunday, Sept. 30, 2018, on "Face the Nation." JOHN DICKERSON: While Washington was captivated by the Kavanaugh hearings this week, in New York, a different drama was unfolding at the annual United Nations General Assembly. We spoke with Iranian foreign minister Javad Zarif about how relations between the US and Iran have gone from bad to worse since President Trump quit the Iran nuclear deal. When Margaret Brennan spoke to Zarif earlier this year before that happened, he had suggested that if Mr. Trump were to pull out, Iran might resume their nuclear program at a greater speed. PART 1: FOREIGN MINISTER ZARIF: It's still- That's still a possibility. JOHN DICKERSON: But it hasn't happened yet? FOREIGN MINISTER ZARIF: It hasn't happened yet because Europeans have been working with us in order to make sure that Iran enjoys the economic dividends of the nuclear … [Read more...] about Transcript: Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif on “Face the Nation,” Sept. 30, 2018
