Wonka

Young Willy Wonka arrives in town with a little money and a bar of chocolate in a top hat halfway between the magician’s hat and Eta Beta’s bag. His dream is to open a large chocolate shop in the square where, however, three master chocolatiers already coexist who form a cartel among themselves and do not allow a new competitor: especially one who manages to make customers fly with his chocolates. Willy stays at an inn whose owner makes him sign a contract full of clauses that bind him to work for years in her laundry, where other unfortunate people who have been deceived in the same way at different times also stay.

One Life

1938. On the eve of the Second World War, Nicholas Winton, Londoner, 29 years old, stockbroker, sensing the threat of the invasion of Hitler’s Germany, organized a rescue plan, known as “Operation Kindertransport” for hundreds of children, many of religious origin Jewish, before the start of the conflict. Thanks to Martin Blake, who had asked him to go to Prague to help him coordinate the operations of the British Committee for Refugees from Czechoslovakia and other central figures such as Doreen Warriner and his mother Babette who in the meantime collaborated from London, Winton managed to get the eight trains carrying hundreds of children reach Great Britain where they are hosted by foster families. A ninth was planned, but on the day he was supposed to leave, September 1, 1939, Hitler invaded Poland and the borders in Europe were closed. In the second half of the 1980s, Winton’s commitment was finally publicly recognized when he had the opportunity to meet those now adult children during the BBC program That’s Life!...
