Zarichovo was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1918 and 1938-1944) with the name of Drugetháza in Ung megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1918-1938) with the name of Zaričov in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Zarechevo and, since 1991, known as Zarichovo, in the Perechynsky rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Zarichovo are Zaričhov, Zaricheve, Zarichevo, Zarichevoye and Zaricsovo.
Zarichovo is located about 17 miles NNE of Uzhhorod (Ungvár).
Jews probably settled in Zarichovo in the late 18th century.
In 1880, the Jewish population was 45 (of a total population of 1,397).
In 1910, the Jewish population was 63.
By 1921, during the Czechoslovakian period, the Jewish population remained 63. A number of Jews were engaged in agriculture, while others were involved in the trades and commerce.
In 1930, the Jewish population was 59.
With the Hungarian occupation of Zarichovo in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, Jews from Zarichovo were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.
By 1941, the Jewish population had decreased to 56 and it was at this time, Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Zarichovo were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Zarichovo were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Zarichovo had about 2,283 inhabitants and no Jews live there today.
