What evidence do you have that these people were or had been Jewish?

There were a few German Jews named WENDEL; none that I know of named
BANTZ. Certainly none by that name >from Breslau.

Look for the civil registration of the birth, which would be in the
Standesamt Bad Bergzabern. You might have to get someone to go there and
find it, though.
