As a boy growing up in Germany’s Black Forest — a region best known for its cuckoo clocks — Gerhard Trimpin stumbled upon a wooded area “with stone formations coming out of the brush” and inscriptions in an undecipherable language. But his parents already knew about that old Jewish cemetery — and they also knew the more recent story of why no more Jews lived in their area, and why their son had little idea of what a Jew was. 22, 1940, 11 years before Trimpin was born, 7,500 Jews from the Black Forest region had been deported to a little known prison camp in the Basque region of southwestern France, near the village of Gurs. It was before the Final Solution was implemented, and many Jews were sent to that camp in unoccupied France simply to get them out of Germany. However, some 3,900 former Gurs prisoners, including the parents and older brother of Manfred Wildmann (a longtime Menlo Park resident), were eventually turned over to the Germans and later deported to Auschwitz, where many were put to death. Many others died at Gurs. While Gurs was neither a transit nor an extermination camp, conditions were so horrific that more than 1,000 Jews died of malnutrition and infectious diseases, according to the camp registry and other sources. Trimpin, who was raised “nominally Protestant,” learned nothing about Jews, Gurs or the Final Solution in his German elementary school, he said during a recent interview at Stanford.
