Nicholas Emil Carl Pfeffer 1923 - ?

Has anyone come across Nicholas Emil Carl Pfeffer, the son of Emil Pfeffer, a prominent Nazi official, and Gulla Pfeffer, the distinguished anti Nazi Ethnologist and photographer. Her film "Menschen im Busch" about the Fulani/Fulbe herdsmen of Northern Nigeria is an early classic of its type.

Gulla's full name was Augusta Melida Johanna Pfeffer née Passburg. She was born in Germany on 28 Nov 1897.

She married Emil Pfeffer, then an opera singer, on 5 July 1919. After their divorce she married Alec Kell in London in an attempt to obtain British residency.
Nicholas was about 16 in 1939 so was born about 1923. He came to England in about 1937 and went to school in London. He was interned in Canada during part of WW II and returned the U.K.
He may have gone to live in W. Germany or the USA when his mother moved to the States.
News of any sightings welcome.
