From 1927 at the latest the family lived in Hamburg, first in Neustadt, later at various addresses in St. Pauli. Elsa Kohn died in 1934. In 1941 Denny Kohn married the widow Senta Pohle, née Polack. Before the couple was forced to move into the "Jewish house" at Schlachterstraße 47, they lived at Rendsburger Straße 14. On 19 July 1942 they were deported to Theresienstadt where Senta Kohn died a few weeks later on 6 Sept. 1942.
