15141 Photo Identification

3/20/2011 5:07 PM This is a class photo taken in Minden, Germany for the school year 1937-38. The school is the Heideschule. The teacher has been identified as Martla Beune. PLEASE help identify the students. I think the fourth from left in the top row is my aunt, Erika (Eva) Ingberg. My mother was Paula Pessa Massa Ingberg. I am assisting a local researcher in Minden with research of the Jewish Community Minden. I would be pleased to hear from anyone researching their Jewish ancestry from this area. Names currently identified in the photo include:
Frey, Ingberg, Kreuz, Hoffmann, Beune, Dreus, Hoppmann, Berg, Miller, Steinbach, Bergmeier, Schmidt, Noltmeir and Dallmeir (Dahlmeier).
