Badalovo was part of the Kingdom of Hungary (11th century - 1920 and 1938-1944) with the name of Badaló in Bereg megye (county), next part of Czechoslovakia (1920-1938) with the name of Badaló in Podkarpatská Rus (Sub-Carpathia), then part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (1945-1991) with the name of Badalovo and, since 1991, known as Badalovo, in the Berehivskiy rayon (district) of Zakarpats'ka oblast (county) of Ukraine.
Other spellings/names for Badalovo are Bodoliv and Bodolov.
Badalovo is located about 8 miles S of Berehove (Beregszász).
Jews probably settled in Badalovo in the first half of the 18th century.
In 1877, the Jewish population was 70.
With the Hungarian occupation of Badalovo in March, 1939, Jews were persecuted and pushed out of their occupations. In 1940-41, dozens of Jews from Badalovo were drafted into forced labor battalions and others were drafted for service on the Eastern front, where most died.
In 1941, a few Jewish families without Hungarian citizenship were expelled to Nazi occupied Ukrainian territory, to Kamenets-Podolski, and murdered there.
The remaining Jews of Badalovo were deported to Auschwitz late May, 1944.
A great many of the Jews from Badalovo were murdered in Auschwitz and any survivors settled elsewhere.
In 2001, Badalovo had about 1,714 inhabitants and only one Jew lives there today (2012).
