Pasłęk (formerly Preussisch Holland) Source: Wikipedia
Preussisch Holland (Polish, Pasłęk), (coordinates: 54.066667, 19.666667 [54° 4′ 0″ N, 19° 40′ 0″ E]; population in 1946, 3,278; 12,179 in 2006), originally called simply Holland, a town formerly in East Prussia southeast of Elbing (now Elbląg), in which there were a few Mennonites until the col­lapse in 1945, members of the Heubuden and Thiensdorf-Preussisch Rosengart congregations. The articles of the founding of the town, dated 29 September 1297, mention that it was named for settlers from Holland. In 1527 a new immigration from the Netherlands set in, at first east of the city toward Bardeyn, consisting of Sacramentists. Others, including Anabaptists, under the leadership of Her­mann Sachs, on 1 February 1539, received permission to settle the village of Schönberg (and also Judendorf) north of the town in the district of Preussisch Hol­land (document printed in Schumacher, 176-78). Their names and the occupations of some are given by Schumacher (184). Their deviation from the re­ligion of the duchy, however, soon became apparent; hence they were expelled by the great church inspec­tion of 1542-1543; only a few adjusted themselves to the dominant church in order to be permitted to re­main in the country. (See East Prussia).
