The Presidents' Tailor
From Auschwitz to the White House
Maxmilian Grünfeld spoke Yiddish, lived in Czechoslovakia, lost his family in the Nazi concentration camps and had no business experience. Martin Greenfield lives in Brooklyn, speaks English, tailors suits for US presidents and runs a bespoke clothing empire with clients and friends from high society.
It is the same man who is now a 92-year-old fashion legend, tailor to US presidents and celebrities, and a bon vivant of the city. Mr. Greenfield is an hour-long documentary that tells the story of a man who, against all odds, went from being Maxmilian Gruenfeld to Martin Greenfield and how he is now coming to terms with his own legacy.
