Kicin (coordinates: 52.7436° N, 20.5247° E [52° 44′ 36.96″ N, 20° 31′ 28.92″ E]), a village near Vola-Vodzinska
and 68 km. (42 mi.) north-west of Warsaw, Poland
, was established by German Mennonite and Lutheran settlers on the estate of Count Kicinski around 1842. Evidently the Mennonite settlers came from the Deutsch-Kazun Mennonite settlement
near Warsaw. Peter Ewert of this community took a large number of the Mennonites with him into the Baptist Church, which was started here in 1855. Mennonites of this community were probably members of the Vola-Vodzinska Mennonite Church, which in turn was a subsidiary of Deutsch-Kazun.
