These are most the children of Simon Guttmann and Bertha Schild (Only Samuel is missing). The first three are Else, Hermine and Selma (my grandmother). The last one is, I believe, Armin, but would like that confirmed. The fourth name is a cousin, and I've never known who. Thank you for your help reading this!

8/21/2020 3:42 AM I agree with you: Elsa, Hermine, Selma and Armin. Even if the "S" is not the same at Selma I would read Sam???. The dash would usually indicate an "u" but I am not sure about. It will not be Samuel, I see no "l", perhaps Sammi(?). One should have more text of that hand to compare the letters.

The first letters of Salma and Samu are different, but it seems the writer used a different hand for the girls' names than for the boys.
