Salomon Kohn, born July 31, 1873 Wehsely, Moravia, † 1945 concentration camp Auschwitz, Art photographer, publisher, wife Gusti. Founded in 1898 with his two brothers Adolf and Alfred in Vienna the postcard publishing Bruder Kohn: the birthplace of the Vienna art postcard (Signum "BKW I"). Little-known, yet historically interesting, locations in Vienna were artistically captured by well-known painters, with Kohn succeeding in attracting significant artists to the design of this new type of postcard (templates supplied by Karl Feiertag, Ernst Graner , Ludwig Koch, Mela Koehler, Erwin August Pendl and others). Kohn's apartment became a cultural salon where artists, writers, actors and scholars met; Gustav Mahler, Arthur Schnitzler, Peter Altenberg , Selma Kurz , Lotte Lehmann , Enrico Caruso , Bruno Walter , Karl Seitz , Max Reinhardt and Josef Popper-Lynkeus were in contact with Kohn. The publishing house was "Aryanized" in 1938. Kohn's successful work was abruptly stopped, and Kohn was allowed to continue working as an employee of his company until 1942, when the Kohn couple were arrested, initially taken to Terezin and then transported to Auschwitz.
