The Jewish cemetery is located in a quiet residential area on the outskirts of Minden. The gate is kept locked, but you can borrow the key from the synagogue in town and let yourself in.

It feels more like walking through a meadow than a cemetery.

Our great grandparents Berta and Adolf are buried here. They lived and died in a very different Germany, before the National Socialists came to power and descrimination ran wild. They saw their sons Leopold and Hugo fight for their country in the First World War.

Our great great grandparents Soloman and Marianne Heineman are also buried here. The gravestone indicates that Soloman was born in Minden, so we've got quite some generations in this little Medieval town.
