The municipality of Witmarsum (3,998 inhabitants in 2020; 15,080 ha) is located 250 km north-west of Florianˇpolis.

Witmarsum was established in 1924 by Paul Zerna, August Langhorst and Helmuth Teosowki. The three German colonists, who had fought in Africa during the First World War, named the place Nova ┴frica. Six years later, the place was settled by Ukrainian Mennonites, who renamed it Witmarsum, as a tribute to the place of birth of Menno Simons (1496-1561), the Friesian town of Witmarsum.
The district of Witmarsum was established within the municipality of Presidente Get˙lio by Municipal Resolution No. 7 promulgated on 24 April 1957, to be elevated a municipality by State Law No. 826 promulgated on 17 May 1962, and inaugurated on 15 June 1962.
