    Default Looking for anything of people with the lastname "Witte"

    Hello there guys,
    I am doing some research and I am looking for paperwork or photo's of people with the lastname "Witte" (which is my lastname aswell, tough my family lives in Holland and is not German). I know of 3 U-Boat commanders with the lastname "witte", respectively Helmut Witte, Werner Witte, and Erwin Witte. But ofcourse there are many more. I know there was a wehrpass of a Witte for sale on ebay in 2001 (yes, a long time ago). I was hoping some of you guys have something in your collection of any Witte during the Third Reich era. Could you please post foto's if you have anything? I would be REALLY grateful!!

    Kind regards,
    Remy Witte.

    P.S. if you do have anything from a Witte in your collection, and you are willing to sell it, please contact me. Cheers.

    Here are 6 names of Solingen Edged weapon and cutlery producers that end in Witte. The Addresses.. were last recorded in 1937..and nothing current is available...or possibly these businesses have been closed since the end of the war.

    1. Carl Gustav Witte: address- Breite Str 2. Solingen Hohescheid
    2. Ernst Witte : address - Mankhauser Str 1. Solingen Ohligs
    3. Ernst Erich Witte : address - Ritter Str 52. Solingen
    4. PD Witte : address - Birker Str 35. Solingen
    5. Rich Witte : address - Ritter Str 73 Solingen
    6. Wilhelm Witte : Munich

    Good luck on the hunt! Regards Larry
