    When I was growing up, before civil rights laws, Kenilworth, along with a number of suburbs and parts of Chicago, wouldn’t let Jews buy, rent, or work there.
    There was a sign at the beginning of a Chicago neighborhood not 10 minutes drive from my home, that read “Welcome to Saganaush. No Negros, Jews, or dogs allowed”.
    How do I remember it so clearly?
    The sign wasn’t ever taken down until it fell apart with age a few short years ago.
