Circle Book Group "A Forger's Life"

Online, on Zoom
Our May book is Sarak Kaminsky's Adolfo Kaminsky: A Forger's Life
A Forger’s Life (nonfiction): At the age of 17, Adolfo Kaminsky had narrowly escaped deportation to Auschwitz and was living in Nazi-occupied Paris, using forged documents to hide in plain sight. Due to his expert knowledge of dyes and his ability to masterfully reproduce official documents with an artistic eye, he was recruited to join the Jewish underground.
