Gätte (Gäta and Göda; now Kúty) in Slovakia (formerly Hungary) near the Delta of the Thaya (Dyje) and the March (Morava), was in the 16th century a part of the Holitsch domain. In the great persecution of 1550, say the chronicles, there was in Gätte in Hungary a Bruderhof with 150 children, also many sick, lame, and blind. But they were ordered to leave the estates of Berthold von Lipa, and wandered about at the mercy of the populace. In 1552 four deacons were confirmed at Gätte. Then the Bruderhof is not mentioned until 70 years later. On 15 April 1627 Croatian horsemen from Moravia plundered it.
