Willers of Hollwege and Moorburg, Oldenburg, Germany

This is the Bernhard Oltmanns farm in Moorburg, Germany about 1910. Dirk Oltmanns has a smaller version of this photo on his Hollwege web page.

Dirk tells that the man and woman standing are Anna Sophie Hupens Willers and Heinrich Bernhard Oltmanns and their daughter Elisabeth (Peters). On the right side is Johann Diedrich Willers, who lived here from 1907 (he sold the house in Hollwege after his wife died and all children had moved.) He lived with the Oltmanns family until his death in 1914. The house and the barn on the left side were destroyed by a bomber when a military car tried to hide in the rear of the house by some trees, 26 April 1945, only a few days before the end of the war.
