Heinrich Gimpel purchased the New Orleans Vicki as a birthday present for Anna Stutzman. That particular version was a sought after toy. Nonetheless, Gimpel worried that the doll would be out of fashion by the time he gave it to Anna. It was not. Anna was quite delighted.
While observing two women fighting over the last Vicki doll in a store, Gimpel used psychology to settle the dispute, invoking the wisdom of King Solomon from Jewish history. This caused grief for Gimpel, as it gave his jilted admirer Erika Dorsch the idea to publicly accuse Gimpel of being Jewish - an assertion which, unknown to Dorsch, was correct.
