Alicia Oltuski - Precious Objects: A Story of Diamonds, Family, and a Way of Life

In Precious Objects, journalist Alicia Oltuski, whose work has appeared on NPR's Berlin Stories, plunges into the history, business and society surrounding NYC's Diamond District, blending her Jewish family's journey from communist Siberia to New York with stories of colorful characters (such as an Elvis-impersonator diamond dealer) who trade daily in the world's most precious stones.
