Well it all depends if they went to a Jewish school. There were many other
Gymnasiums. This school had an excellent reputation and high standard, as
attested by the various references you find if you google it. Here are a few:

a photograph

http://www.aajr.org/obituaries.html - search for Chaya Barzilay, Our Mother

I would write to the current school [Traude Triebel kindly sent details] to see
if they have a register of pupils stretching back many years.
