Hannacha Peril Cohn (1938-1942)
On November 12, 1938 Hannacha Peril Cohn was born in Halle as a daughter of Recha and Richard Cohn to the world. [58] On June 1, 1942, she was deported with her mother and her grandmother and murdered in Sobibor extermination camp two days later.

From my mother's story: The rest of the time in Germany, which was only several months away before coming to America, I worked in a Jewish household. The Cohn’s had a baby girl Hannah and I took care of her. I knew this family for many years. They had a variety wholesale business next to where we lived on Franke Strasse. Mr. Cohn left for England in June of 1939. His wife and little Hannah were to follow but it was too late and they perished like so many other people.
