Gertrud Gumpert was born into a Jewish family in Fürstenwalde on 15 January 1884. At that time, the family was living at Am Markt 4. When Gertrud was a child, her parents Isidor and Sara Gumpert (née Feilchenfeld) moved with the family to Berlin. Her younger sister Bertha Marta was born there on 3 May 1889. Gertrud attended the commercial school in Strahlen­dorf, before marrying the merchant Ludwig Krebs on 23 November 1911. The couple lived at Essener Straße 26 in Berlin.

On 18 October 1941, Gertrud Krebs committed suicide to avoid deportation. The time of her death coincides with the beginning of the deportations of Jews from the German Reich. On this day, the first deportation train with 1,013 Jews left Grunewald station for Litz­mann­stadt (Polish: Łódź). Gertrud Gumpert is buried in the Jewish Cemetery in Berlin-Weißensee. Her husband Ludwig was deported to Riga on 5 September 1942 and murdered three days later.
