Biography

Starr Pait was born in San Jose, California in 1911. She graduated from San Jose State and received a master's degree in Germanic languages from Stanford. While on a fellowship to Germany she met and fell in love with Werner Gurcke. They married in 1936 in Santa Cruz, California before leaving for San José, Costa Rica where Werner Gurcke had previously immigrated. There they started a family and Gurcke developed a thriving import-export business in Costa Rica, dealing in buttons, umbrellas and Hamilton watches. But because he was still a German citizen, Werner Gurcke's business was one of 340 blacklisted by the Costa Rican government, under pressure from the United States. He and his brother were arrested without explanation in July 1942. Six months later, the whole family was put on the U.S. Army transport ship Puebla. Werner Gurcke spent all three weeks in the hold of the ship, while Starr Gurcke -- described in a Department of Justice document as "sort of (an) American citizen" -- and her two young daughters slept in a cramped cabin with other families. When the Puebla landed in San Pedro, Calif., immigration officials finally told Werner Gurcke their reason for holding him: he had entered the United States illegally. He was not allowed legal counsel, and he and his family were taken by train to Crystal City, a former camp for farmworkers. Since Werner Gurcke was married to a U.S. citizen, he was granted "internment at large" 18 months later at his first hearing.
The family moved to the Seabright area of Santa Cruz, where the Pait family had a beach bungalow. On Feb. 25, 1946, Gurcke got a letter from immigration authorities saying that he was no longer considered an enemy alien. It was the same day an immigration officer knocked on his door to ask him to sign a document admitting he was in the United States illegally. His boss and 18 neighbors petitioned the government, saying that deportation would result in extreme hardship for his wife and children and deprive the country of "an intelligent, cultured, responsible resident." After a three-year legal battle, he was exonerated of having entered the country illegally. In 1952, he became a U.S. citizen, pledging to fight all enemies, foreign and domestic. Werner Gurcke died of cancer in 1970 at age 61.
After Werner's death, Starr used her linguistic talents translating documents for local historians and the County of Santa Cruz. She died in Santa Cruz in 1997 at age 86.
