Event Note

On October 1940, Herbert Odeheimer, along with his family and the remaining Jews of Bühl, was transported to camp de Gurs.
Ehud Loeb cites "Early in the morning, the Gestapo had burst suddenly on the scene and ordered everyone to pack up their belongings within the hour. Ten kilograms per person. And be ready to travel."
"I can hear my parents' voices to this day. Mother lifted me from my bed ¬ I was 6-and-a-half - and washed me quietly, slowly, then dressed me, and, before putting on my socks, she said: "Remember always, when you put on your socks, that you have toenails like your father's. And then you'll remember him." Then she said: "At night, look at the moon. If we are ever parted, know that, wherever we are, we will all be looking at the same moon." She kissed me firmly."
