My name is Amanda Kunzi. I am second generation in America. My grandfather is from Germany. He was the youngest of nine children. After the war only him and his older two sisters survived. Both his parents died when he was very young also. There might be a connection being that Germany and Switzerland are so near to one another. I know that my family had their genealogy traced quite a few years back. I will talk to them and see if I can help your friend out in anyway.
