New York Times columnist Nicholas D. Kristof talks about the legacy of his father, Ladis "Kris" Kristof (1918 - 2010).

Kris Kristof was born of Polish and Armenian parents in Romania. After the land was confiscated by the Soviet Union's Red Army (ultimately becoming part of Ukraine), Kristof swam the Danube River in 1948 to escape.

While living in the U.S., Kristof and his wife became active members of Amnesty International. They even helped found Amnesty Group 48 in Portland, OR.

This video was inspired by the life and spirit of Ladis "Kris" Kristof. The Ladis Kristof Fellowship will help connect a new generation to the life-changing work of Amnesty International.
