2) Ot. Windheim, Bahnhofstr. (Gerz)
This cemetery also served Ovenstaedt's Jewish community. " Not long ago, I discovered grave stones of my family that had been used as steps along the Weser (river passing Petershagen). We cleaned the stones and also restored them and put them back in the cemetery in Petershagen at the same place from which they originally came. However, they are flat on the ground and need to be righted. The MINDEN Jewish community is responsable for Petershagen cemetery. Please contact me if you are interested in restoration of any of this cemetery." Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
