This postcard company was established in 1898 by Salomon Kohn. The company’s “main product was high-quality art postcards, mostly based on paintings by contemporary artists. Although the business had flourished during the first two decades of the century, because of the death of [Salomon’s] brother Adolf, an Austrian soldier, during World War I, the dismantling of the Austrian monarchy, and the postwar economic depression, it gradually fell upon hard times during the 1920s and 1930s, and [Salomon] struggled from crisis to crisis to maintain his business and support his family…After the Nazi Anschluss (annexation) of Austria in 1938, the family business was confiscated [and Salomon] was forced to continue to manage it without compensation…[Salomon and his wife] were deported to the concentration camps at Theresienstadt and then Auschwitz, where they perished.
