OTL -- Evan Kaufmann: Fathers' Land

Should Jewish-American hockey player Evan Kaufmann continue playing in Germany despite the fact many family members were killed in the Holocaust?

On "Outside The Lines," Jeremy Schaap brings the fascinating, emotional story of Evan Kaufmann. He's a former University of Minnesota hockey star. He's also a Jewish-American, and many of his relatives were killed in the Holocaust. So when a professional hockey team in Dusseldorf, Germany -- not far from where his German grandfather lived before arriving in the U.S. -- called to offer him a position, he was forced to make a difficult decision. And it's one he's glad he made.
