Kadyny / Kadinen or Cadinen, Poland

is a village of Gmina Tolkmicko, Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, in northern Poland. It is situated in the Elbląg Upland Landscape Park, a protected area on aterminal moraine stretching along the Vistula Lagoon of the Baltic Coast.

The terra Cadinensis in Prussia was first mentioned in a 1255 deed. From 1431 the Cadinen manor was owned by Johannes von Baysen, leader of the Prussian Confederation in the Thirteen Years' War aganinst the Teutonic Knights under Grand Master Ludwig von Erlichshausen.

With the 1466 Second Peace of Thorn it became part of Royal Prussia and thus politically Polish.

The Baysen noble family finally sold Cadinen in 1605. With Royal Prussia, it was annexed by the Kingdom of Prussia during the First Partition of Poland in 1772. The German emperor Wilhelm II acquired Cadinen Manor in 1898 and had it rebuilt as his summer residence. Since 1945, when the area was turned over to the Republic of Poland according to the Potsdam Agreement, it has been called Kadyny. Today the estates are managed as a cultural heritage site and popular tourist destination.

Was nice town once... Very important for the culture of Lithuania and Lithuanians.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Kay_(musician)
Quote:
John Kay (born Joachim Fritz Krauledat, 12 April 1944, in Tilsit, East Prussia, Germany, now Sovetsk, Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia) is a German-Canadian-American rock singer, songwriter, and guitarist known as the frontman of Steppenwolf.
Quote:
In the Evacuation of East Prussia in early 1945, in harsh winter conditions, his mother first had to flee with the baby boy from the advancing Soviet troops. In 1948, the two also fled from Arnstadt in the East German Soviet occupation zone to resettle in Hanover, West Germany (as recounted in his song "Renegade" on the album Steppenwolf Seven). Located in the British occupation zone, teen aged Joachim, suffering from eyesight problems, listened to music broadcast by the British Forces Broadcasting Service before his family moved to Canada in 1958.

He joined a blues rock and folk music group known as The Sparrows in 1965, which had moderate success in Canada before moving to California in the USA, augmenting its line-up and changing its name to Steppenwolf in 1967. With music that pioneered hard rock and heavy metal, Kay's Steppenwolf had international success with songs such as "Born to Be Wild", "Magic Carpet Ride", "Monster", "The Pusher", and "Rock Me". This was multiplied by the use of "Born to Be Wild" and "The Pusher" in the 1969 movie Easy Rider.


I wonder what he would sing in the USSR.
Lucky guy of Lithuanian background.

Yeah, rock music in USSR was a "devil music"
In such matter, we can mention Anthony Kiedis from red hot chili peppers.

The conversion of Albert of Prussia to Lutheranism in 1525 brought all of ducal Prussia and Masuria to Protestantism. From 1772-1945 Warmia was part of Lutheran East Prussia, with the exception that the people of Warmia remained largely Catholic.

The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Poland the largest Protestant body in Poland ( 80.000 out of 150.000 Polish Protestants), is rooted in the Reformation. The first Lutheran sermons were held in 1518, and in 1523 the first Lutheran dean, Johann Heß, was called to the city of Wrocław/Breslau, whence Lutheranism was spread into the Polish lands.

Today the Evangelical church In Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship has 15 parishes and 27 chapels.
