Overview

Polish Mennonites. lived in Żuławy, Poland's largest area located below the sea level. Hundreds of canals, kilometers of dykes, network of pumps and locks allowed for removing water and gradual drainage of Żuławy territory. A great share of this work has to be attributed to Dutch settlers – a hardworking, puritan community known as Polish Mennonites. They represented one of the strictest branches of protestantism, which had a lot in common with Amish culture. The Dutch Mennonites lived in Żuławy for over 400 years. They came to Poland as refugees fleeing from religious conflict torn Holland. It was here where they could find new home, peace and freedom.
