Forging Resistance: The Forger Documentary Wins an Emmy

Have you ever wondered who created the fake documents that allowed Jewish refugees to cross unfriendly borders during World War Two? For over 14,000 people, the answer was Adolfo Kaminsky. Recruited by the French resistance as a teenager after his family, themselves Jewish, managed to escape from an internment camp, Kaminsky had learned the chemistry of colorants while working in a dye shop as a child. During the war, he labored tirelessly, telling colleagues, “If I sleep for an hour, thirty people will die.” Kaminsky lived in obscurity for decades, until 2016 when his daughter Sarah published a biography of her 92-year-old father called Adolfo Kaminsky: A Forger’s Life. The remarkable story caught the attention of the New York Times, who printed an article about Kaminsky in its Sunday, October 6, 2016 issue and simultaneously released a short documentary film online called The Forger. The film, produced by Samantha Stark, Alexandra Garcia and Pamela Druckerman ofManual Cinema Studios, won an Emmy Award at the 38th annual News & Documentary Awards on October 5. Our warmest congratulations to this very deserving project!
