All three already left Dortmund in different directions in 1933. Albert Cohen deregistered from the address in Dortmund in August 1933 in order to move to Hamburg. His wife deregistered on 29 November 1933 and relocated to Enschede (Netherlands), after previously being held in custody at Steinwache police station.

There, they only stayed a few days before being deported to Sobibor extermination camp, where they were murdered on 23 April 1943.
