(19384) Winton = 1998 CP1
Discovered 1998 February 6 by M. Tichý and J. Tichá at Kle.
 Nicholas Winton (b. 1909), a British stockbroker, managed to save more than 600 Czech Jewish children from occupied Czechoslovakia by bringing them to Great Britain in 1938-1939. This is a great example of resistance and courage in the atmosphere of a totalitarian regime.
