I inform you that a video casette with an Alfred Nourney interview (08.08.1962) (49 minutes) is available from SWR Media, Stuttgart. The price is DM 150 postage included.Buyers have to sign a declaration not to distribute,copy or lend the video to others. The punishment for that is DM 5000.
The Nourney family had a wine shop in Koln right back to 1885 according to Koln adressbook. That explains that his mother was able to give him a lot of money before travelling on the Ttianic.

Honnefer Volkszeitung situated in Bad Honnef, Germany has issued an online article about the journalist and editor Franz Josef Kayser dated April 17 1999. Kayser was celebrated and honoured for having worked for the newspaper for 45 years.
According to the article he got a good start with news from the local area when he interviewed Titanic passenger Alfred Nourney:
Translated into English by Arne Mjåland:
"How Honnefer Alfred Nourney survived the Titanic. Thar was possible to read in an April 1954 edition of HVZ. The author Franz Josef Kayser. This was the very first large newspaper article the at that time "Jungredakteur" wrote".
Those on this board who speaks German language may want to get into contact with Kayser to get him to tell more about his interview with Nourney in 1954? His name might be found in a German telephone dictionary?
