Man saves 669 kids during Holocaust, has priceless reaction when they surprise him years later

Although history is filled with many dark chapters, sometimes people rise to the occasion and prove themselves in these tough situations. During World War II, European Jews saw their families broken up, their friends kidnapped and their neighbors turned against them. While Nazi rule created a dark atmosphere that fostered silence and intimidation throughout Europe, there were some people who resisted.

One such person was Nicholas Winton, a British stockbroker who risked his life to save Jewish children from what was then Czechoslovakia. All told, he was able to smuggle 669 children out of the country and safely into Britain, with some people dubbing him the “British Schindler.” Though Winton never claimed any serious credit for his actions, he did keep scrapbooks in his attic which had all the children’s information in them. The story was seemingly over—that is, until his wife found his scrapbooks in the attic.
By using the information in the books, Winton’s wife was able to arrange a truly special surprise for her husband. The moment was aired in a BBC series called “That’s Life,” a variety show which featured trenchant journalism, satire and sometimes light entertainment. Though Winton was in the audience for the show on one episode, it soon became clear something unusual was going on.
First, the producer of the show revealed that Winton had been sitting next to one of the children he saved the entire time. At this first revelation, he shed a few tears and received some applause. Still, the true surprise was yet to come. “Can I ask,” the producer says, “is there anyone in our audience tonight who owes their life to Nicholas Winton? If so, could you stand up please?” After a moment, everyone in the audience stands up and Winton is completely floored.

By using his own scrapbooks, the show’s producers had tracked down as many of the saved children as they could and reunited them for one truly special moment. Still, there were more honors to come in Winton’s life. In 2003, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth the second. In 2014, he was inducted into the Czech Order of the White Lion, the highest ranking military honor available. In 2015, he passed away at the age of 106.
What Winton’s story shows is that it takes individuals to change the world. In the face of huge challenges, sometimes the most radical thing to do is also the simplest: taking action on what we know to be right. Winton’s life seemed to be marked with this philosophy above all, as he wore a reminder of it on his finger into late age. The ring was given to him by children he saved, and was inscribed with a quote from the Talmud, the book of Jewish law. “Save one life, save the world,” it said. And we couldn’t agree more.

Japan: More than four million middle-aged 'parasite singles' still live with their elderly parents

Millions of middle-aged singles in Japan still live with their elderly parents and depend on them financially, research has revealed, contributing to the county’s falling birth rate and ageing population
The country had an estimated 4.5 million unemployed — or under-employed — and unmarried 35- to 54-year-olds who still lived at home in 2016. They have been dubbed "parasite singles" by researchers.
While Prime Minister Shinzo Abe faces pressure to combat the country's shrinking workforce, a generation who were once characterised as carefree are now worried about how they will make ends meet when their parents pass away. Many are likely to go on state benefits, putting further pressure on a social welfare system that is already creaking under the weight of the country's ageing population.
Japan’s population is set to plummet from 127 million to 88 million by 2065 - and is projected to drop even further to just 51 million by 2115 if current trends continue, according to the country's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research.
By 2065 nearly 40 per cent of the country will be senior citizens. There will be 1.3 workers for every person over the age of 65, compared to 2.3 in 2015. Economists have described the situation as a “demographic time bomb”.
Data released this month showed the number of "life-time singles" in Japan peaked in 2015. Among 50 year olds, one in four men and one in seven women were unmarried.
Sociologist Masahiro Yamada coined the term "parasite singles" in 1997.
“During the ‘bubble economy’ until the mid-1990s, the 20-somethings were happily amusing themselves. They thought by the time they were in their 30s, they’d be married,” he told Reuters.
“But one-third never married and are now around age 50."
Hiromi Tanaka, a former backup singer for pop groups, is what Mr Yamada would call a parasite single. 
“I got used to living in an unstable situation and figured somehow it would work out,” Ms Tanaka said.
Now aged 54, Ms Tanaka relies on income from giving private singing lessons to a dwindling number of students, and her mother’s pension to make ends meet. She has no pension plan of her own, and has used up most of her savings.
“My father died last year so pension income was halved,” she said. “If things go on like this, my mother and I will fall together.
About 20 per cent of middle-aged stay-at-home singles rely solely on parents for support, Mr Yamada told Reuters, adding that when their parents pass away they could become a burden on the state. “Once they use up inherited assets and savings, when nothing is left, they will go on the dole,” Mr Yamada said.
But many "parasite singles" argue that they did not choose their lifestyle, but were handed it by the economy.
The rise in those shunning marriage, experts say, is due not only to more diverse lifestyles but to an increase in low-paying, unstable jobs. Part-timers, temps or contract workers now account for nearly 40 per cent of the workforce compared to about 20 per cent in the 1980s.
Although a recent shortage of workers in Japan’s labour market has meant a slight fall in the number of singles living off parents, the overall trend probably will not change, said Katsuhiko Fujimori, an economist at Mizuho Information and Research Institute.
“That’s because of the increase in irregular workers and the fact that more and more people cannot marry for economic reasons, even if they want to.”
