Born in 1849, Gottschalk Bandmann, who ran a store for linens and fashion goods at Neuer Steinweg 86 in the Neustadt quarter, had five children. His first wife Rosa, née Friedberg, gave birth to daughter Alice in 1880. Alice later worked as a sales assistant in her father’s shop. In 1888, Herbert was born as the son of the second wife, Regina, née Herz. He worked as a sales representative.
In the years 1890 and 1892, sons Paul and Richard were new arrivals to the family. Son Leo was born in 1900 and he underwent training to become a confectioner. Both Alice and her brothers Herbert and Leo Bandmann remained unmarried, living at Eckernförderstraße 66 on the fourth floor until their deportation to Lodz on 25 Oct. 1941. They shared an apartment with the Finkels couple. According to data of the national census from May 1939, Leo was also registered in Munich for a time. On the deportation list he is entered as a "gardener.”
Herbert Bandmann died on 30 Mar. 1942 in the Lodz ("Litzmannstadt”) Ghetto. Nothing is known about the subsequent fate of brothers Paul and Richard. Leo Bandmann was declared dead after the war.
