  • Alt Sanitz
  • Blesewitz


New Sanitz

Neu Sanitz was first mentioned in 1345 as "Nyenzagenicz". It was not until 1851 that the place was called Neu Sanitz. The place was laid out as Vorwerk / Meierhof in the desert Feldmark von Sanitz, but was to nerdin as pertinence, d. H. Part of an estate , proper. For an interpretation of the name, see Alt Sanitz.

In addition to the Vorwerk, Neu Sanitz had a few small, scattered settlement courtyards.

Since 1895 Neu Sanitz has been touched by the Anklam-Gellendin-Dennin small railway line, which, unlike other small railway lines, was not dismantled in 1945, but only in 1969. The place had its own stopping point.

Alt Sanitz

Alt Sanitz was first mentioned in a document in 1258 as "de Zaiens", 1631 with "Sanitz" and then from 1851 with Alt Sanitz. As a Slavic foundation, this means “Heubach”. The place probably fell into desolation during the Thirty Years' War , because it was only rebuilt in 1764 by immigrant families.

Alt Sanitz was also affected by the small railway line Anklam-Gellendin-Dennin in 1895 and also had a stopping point.

The place consisted of a contiguous row of flats and had a post mill. Striking to the south of the village are a large number of stone walls made of stones collected from the arable land and used to demarcate the cattle pastures.

The rural community of Alt Sanitz was merged with Neu Sanitz and Blesewitz to form the community of Sanitz in the 1920s . Sanitz, in turn, became part of the Pelsin community in 1935. On the occasion of the dissolution of the large Pomeranian communities after the Second World War , the community of Sanitz emerged from Alt Sanitz, Neu Sanitz and Blesewitz . Blesewitz was spun off from the municipality of Sanitz on January 1, 1951. On December 31, 1952, Sanitz was incorporated into Blesewitz. So both places came together again, but this time under the name Blesewitz .


Manor house Blesewitz

Blesewitz was first mentioned in a document as Blaseviz in 1326. The current name is not mentioned until 1658. The Slavic founding name means something like "bare surface". Blesewitz is a manor village, which later developed into an anger village, with a church and churchyard.

The former knighthood of Blesewitz belonged to the Kolbe family, who were based in Mecklenburg and Pomerania. The non-noble family had grown rich as mill owners and bought several estates in the middle of the 18th century, including Charlottenhof, Rossin and Pritzlow. Blesewitz came to the family at the beginning of the 19th century. The last owner was Paul Kolbe, he had 865 hectares here  , 100 hectares of which were forest.

After the land reform and during the LPG times, the manor house built around was used as a residence for resettlers and later as a rural cultural center. Almost all of the buildings and their surroundings, including the park, have been preserved from the compact estate, only partially changed in the GDR era (roofs, etc.).


In the state elections in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in 2011 , 97 valid votes were cast. Of these, 28.9 percent were for the NPD (2006: 32.2), 22.7 percent for the CDU (29.8), 16.5 percent for the SPD (14.9) and 15.5 percent for Die Linke (9.9).

In the state elections in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in 2016, 48.2 percent of the votes were cast for the AfD and 17.3 percent for the NPD. With this, the village achieved a certain fame as a stronghold of right-wing populist and right-wing extremist parties.
