Now on the London Review of Books podcast: Adam Shatz, US editor, reads his review of Adolfo Kaminsky, A Forger’s Life
In a recent episode of the LRB podcast, Adam Shatz reads his piece on Kaminsky, whom he met in 2019.
“Adolfo Kaminsky, a first-class forger while still a teenager, saved thousands of lives as an agent of the French Resistance. After the war, he turned his counterfeiting skills towards anticolonialist causes while building his reputation as a photographer…. Forgery wasn’t just an art he perfected,’ Shatz writes, ‘but a vocation and an ethics.’”
