Although Winton successfully coordinated the evacuation of many hundreds of children, many more thousands of Czechoslovak children would not be so lucky. Irving Roth was ten years old when the Second World War broke out, he survived the liquidation of the Jewish community in the town of Humenne, Eastern Slovakia and was transported to Auschwitz and Buchenwald Concentration camps. In March 2009, the British International School of Bratislava was honoured to welcome Mr Roth to its Secondary School assembly.
