This biography of Přemysl Pitter tells the story of a Czech Protestant thinker, charitable and social worker, who spent most of his life in dispute with the mainstream historical currents of a bygone age.
During the Nazi occupation he helped Jewish children between 1945-1947, during the so-called ‘Castle Initiative’, he organized humanitarian assistance for more than eight hundred Jewish, Czech and German children rescued from concentration or collection (expulsion) camps. After 1951, when he was forced to go into exile, he worked for ten years in the Valka refugee camp near Nuremberg.
