(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #242 - Read: Sarah Kaminsky, "Adolfo Kaminsky, a forger of life" (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 20 Oct 2014 12:01:13 +0300

Adolfo Kaminsky began operations forger committed during the Second World War. He was first deported as a Jew in a "holding camp" in Drancy, but thanks to his Argentinian, there remain only a few months and so has the chance to be released. ---- Kaminsky learned from a pharmacist in his village childhood bases in chemistry, material that fascinated him. And the top of its 17 years, then he returned to the networks of the Resistance to make false papers for resistant, families should be deported, those in danger. Besides his time: "Stay awake. As long as possible. Fight against sleep. The calculation is simple. Within an hour, I make thirty false papers. If I sleep one hour, thirty people will die ... " .

Without being able to join any organization to protect those he helped. Subsequently, it has greatly helped the independence of the war in Algeria (FLN), as well as many national liberation movements in the context of decolonization. After the war and after helping the Stern group to fight against the British occupation army, he had planned to go live in Palestine. Traumatized by the Holocaust, attracted by the appearance collectivist socialist Zionism and the "free movement of peoples", it however has "supported the new state chooses religious and individualism, because it was all I hated. A state religion, it amounted to creating, once again, two categories of people: Jews and others " .

When I met Kaminsky at the feast of the CNT in May 2014 the wandering Word in Montreuil, I listened with great interest. This is now an old man of 89 years, very humble, quiet. He has given me want to read his book. We can perhaps have never heard of him if indeed his daughter, Sarah Kaminsky, was not motivated by a desire to pass on his story to future generations. Man has always refused to be paid for his work and to make false papers for mobsters or manufacture of counterfeit notes (even for fund cases). Serendipity: I also had the opportunity to go play at the park in Belleville recently his son José Kaminski, born in 1977 in Bab El Oued in Algeria, said Rocé.

Rap Rocé is a conscious rap, and like his father, is the desire to participate in a world of justice and freedom that justifies its commitment. As a young teenager, this story has helped me to better understand the history of the Second World War and the various wars of independence. I have also seen what courage.
