The collection consists of the Star of David
"Jude" patch said to have belonged to Saul Kantor (1912-1976); two drawings by
his son, Yakov Kantor (1952-2007), a graphic artist and member of the Portland,
Oregon, Jewish LGBT community, inspired by the 2005 Hungarian film
Fateless); and two photographs, 2000 and
2003, of Yakov Kantor.
Saul Kantor was born in Germany in 1912. He maintained a flourishing
business as a cabinetmaker until the Nazi rise to power in 1935. After the
Nazis instituted increasingly severe restrictions against Jews he fled Germany
in 1939, and emigrated to the United States. He died in 1976.
