Edith Cohn (1893 - 1942) and Julian Cohn (1889 - 1942)

Edith Cohn, née Camnitzer, was born on 22.02.1893 in Jena and married the merchant Julian Cohn, born in 1889, in August 1932. They took over Edith's mother Sara Camnitzer's laundry business and lived with her and her relatives Maria Stensch and Louis Zamory at Saalstraße 15/16. The house no longer exists.

Julian Cohn and Louis Zamory were among the Jewish men from Jena who were interned in the Buchenwald concentration camp for several weeks after November 9, 1938. The family's textile stores were closed down and were subject to "liquidation". Deprived of their livelihood, the family had to leave their home in 1941 and move to the camp in Löbstedter Straße, which consisted of old railroad carriages. Edith and Julian Cohn were deported from Weimar to Bełżyce in occupied Poland on May 10, 1942, where they were presumably murdered in October 1942.

The stumbling stones for the Cohn couple were placed in front of Saalstraße 9 on 17.08.2009 (initiative of the Jenaer Arbeitskreis Judentum).
