Husum is a city (population 23,551 in 1954; 22,338 in 2007) in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of Schleswig (coordinates: 54° 28′ 0″ N, 9° 3′ 0″ E). In the early 1600s Jan Clasen, called Rollwagen (see Acronius), the ducal dike-master, planned to build some dikes south and north of Husum. Although Husum never had special religious privileges, it is known that two Mennonites were citizens there in 1702 and 1737 practicing their dyer's trade; viz., Johan Claesen van Aken and Franz Claasen van Aken, probably father and son; their descendants, if there were any, were lost to the state church through mixed marriage. Twice Husum again plays a slight role in Mennonite history. In 1850 C. J. van der Smissen, pastor of Friedrichstadt, fled to Husum with the church records when Schleswig-Holstein shelled its own city during the Danish occupation. The last preacher of the Friedrichstadt church, an Ellenberger, made his living as a bank official in Husum, because the church had lost its assets in the catastrophic inflation of German currency in 1922-1923.
