Sarah Kaminsky on 60 Minutes

For those of your fortunate enough to have attended last year's Holiday Party, you will recall our guest speaker was Sarah Kaminsky, who discussed her book about her father, Adolfo, the master forger who saved thousands of Jewish lives.

This past Sunday, 60 MINUTES ran a segment where Anderson Cooper interviewed Sara and her father.
