Kohn’s Kosher Deli, founded more than 60 years ago by a Holocaust survivor, is up for sale.
The restaurant/meat market at 10405 Old Olive Street Road in Creve Coeur is listed by Lawyers Realty LLC. The combined asking price for the business and the property is $2.275 million.
The deli was opened in 1963 in University City by Simon Kohn, who died in 2013.
Kohn was born in Poland, near the border with Germany. He and his family were among the first to be rounded up by the Nazis in 1939.
After being tattooed with the number 141341, the 13-year-old Kohn was sent to six concentration camps before escaping from Auschwitz near the end of the war.
