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.
