Here’s the background about Adolfo Kaminsky in a video from the New York Times.
The Producer’s Request
“My name is Jenny and we’re working on a story about a French forger named Adolfo Kaminsky. He lived in Paris and worked for the resistance forging documents to save Jews during the war.
Most of his work was done between December 1943 and mid-1944.
Many of those he saved were children who became hidden children in France.
I’m trying to get in touch with a survivor who may have been saved by Kaminsky’s work.
If you were, or know someone who was, originally living in the Paris area and then hidden in France during the war, I would love to talk to you. I’m also wondering if you might still have your forged documents.
Please feel free to email– firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!”
Let’s see if you have suggestions to look, or specific people who’d be open to being contacted, any help is appreciated!
