German SIG #Germany Looking for an Australian relative with a surname similar to SHAHKOR, SHAHKORI or SHAHKORY #germany

On a recent visit to Israel, I was told by relatives with the surname
SCHWARZ that a male relative with a surname that resembles the Hebrew word
for the color "black" visited them at their kibbutz, Sde Nahum, from
Australia, probably in the 50's or 60's.

His original surname was SCHWARZ, and he would have been born in
Kosten (now Koscian) either in 1874, 1875, 1881 or very soon thereafter.
His parents would be Michaelis Meyer SCHWARZ
and Ottilie FISCHEL. But if the visitor was his son, which is the more
likely scenario, then he would have been born in Kosten, Posen or Berlin
about 25 years later, so approximately 1900 - 1910. His surname was
something like SHAHKOR, SHAHKORI or SHAHKORY, but they don't remember a
first name. So this seems to suggest that this relative first went to
Palestine and then emigrated to Australia.

I feel like I'm looking for a needle in a haystack, but I do believe this
relative is my great-grandmother's brother or his son. I am anxious to find
him as this means I may have 3rd cousins out there! I have searched on
Ancestry, Familysearch, Australian National Archives, Trove, Ryerson and
bd-bd. Any help or further suggestions would be much appreciated!
