Zwadda is a manorial village just west of Prechlau in Kries Schlochau.
Some of the earliest Remus family records come from this village where Elisabeth Remus daughter of Michael Remus of Pollnitz lived with her husband Franz Trehn. Their children were born here and in Ziethen. Click here for that family. Also in this village was Georg Hass whose son Johan Georg , later the schultz of Krumstadt, was born in this village and was to marry into the Michael Remus family above when they had all moved to the area of Okiersk.

The barns, however, remain. Following are the pictures:
