Edward Kahn of estate jewelry company House of Kahn has died at age 103.

CBS Chicago reports that Kahn was one of the oldest Holocaust survivors.

He built House of Kahn, which has locations in Chicago and Palm Beach, FL, with his wife, Adele. Just six weeks ago he made public his plans to retire, with his daughter Tobina Kahn to take over the business.

Kahn came to the U.S. from Romania in 1951 with less than $100 in assets, having lost his parents and sister to the Holocaust.

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
