    Collection Summary
    The collection documents the Holocaust-era experiences of Alexander Schenker and his father Oskar Schenker, including Alexander’s time in a Soviet forced labor camp, and Oskar’s flight from Lithuania to Japan with the help of a transit visa issued by the Japanese consul in Kaunas, Chiune Sugihara, and subsequent immigration to the United States from Japan. Personal papers included identification and travel papers, primarily belonging to Oskar. Objects include a cup, cigarette holder, and cigar lighter all owned by Alexander in Russia.
    The collection was donated to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum by Alexander Schenker in 2002.
