Historyk i nauczyciel, który jak nikt inny opisał żydowskie życie we Wrocławiu i niesprawiedliwości doznane w czasie reżimu narodowego socjalizmu. Tym samym stał się jednym z najwybitniejszych świadków swoich czasów. W roku 1941 Willy Cohn i jego rodzina zostali deportowani z Wrocławia przez władze niemieckie i zamordowani w Kownie (Litwa). Ta kamienica, Rynek 49, została zbudowana przez jego ojca, żydowskiego kupca Louisa Cohna w 1902 roku.

A historian and teacher, who like nobody else described Jewish life in Wroclaw and the injustice suffered during the National Socialist regime. Thus he became one of the most eminent witnesses of his time. In 1941 Willy Cohn and his family were deported from Wroclaw by the German authorities and murdered in Kowno (Lithuania). This building, Rynek 49, was built in 1902 by his father Louis Cohn, the Jewish merchant.
