Adolfo Kaminsky: A Forger's Life by Sarah Kaminsky

Description

Reader's Choice Award – Elle Magazine, France
Wall Street Journal's Top 10 Most Anticipated Non-Fiction: Fall Books 2016
Subject of The New York Times video "The Forger," winner of a World Press Photo Award for long-form documentary.



Best-selling author Sarah Kaminsky takes readers through her father Adolfo Kaminsky's perilous and clandestine career as a real-life forger for the French Resistance, the FLN, and numerous other freedom movements of the twentieth century. Recruited as a young Jewish teenager for his knowledge of dyes, Kaminsky became the primary forger for the French Resistance during the Nazi occupation of Paris. Then, as a professional photographer, Kaminsky spent the next twenty-five years clandestinely producing thousands of counterfeit documents for immigrants, exiles, underground political operatives, and pacifists across the globe. Kaminsky kept his past cloaked in secrecy well into his eighties, until his daughter convinced him to share the details of the life-threatening work he did on behalf of people fighting for justice and peace throughout the world.
