Surnames: Binder, Schelte, Pinke, Schult
My grandmother Ursula Ruth Schelte (nicknamed Uschi) was born in Hamburg on December 13th, 1929. The daughter of Franz Schelte (prior to the war he had been a jeweller by trade.) and Else Schult was brought up in an apartment in the St. Pauli district with her elder brother Heinz. During World War II, she was sent to work on a farm, which we believe was in Warsaw, Poland. She also moved to various other towns. Due to the war she was separated from her parents, her brother and grandmother Margarethe Pinkie.
Eventually she wed her first husband Georg Binder and the two moved to Lüneburg. There she had four children, Bernd (born 26 June 1949); Rolf (born 9 October 1950); Dolores born (11 November 1951); Jutta (born 1 January 1953)They then came to Australia on the Fairsea in 1954 from Bremerhaven.
Ursula is the daughter of Franz Shelte {3rd Oct,1900- 9th Oct,1966} and Else Schult {21 Dec, 1906-22nd Nov, 1988} (Maternal granddaughter of Willi Schult {Born in 1898} and Margarethe Pinke {19th of Jan, 1886 - 22nd of Nov,1973.)Margarethe (so my nanna's great grandparents were Antonia {unknown} and Max Pinke {1859-1943.}
My grandmother's elder brother is Heinz Shelte, we are in contact with him; but he knows very little of what has happened to the family and doesn't have any information.
If you have any information or any advice, please comment! I am desperate for any information!

I also provided a photo the young girl is my grandmother, the older women is her mother Else.
